I always hated him because he generally performed well against us, but I've got nothing against him. Played with grit, etc. etc.

I have nothing against him, he wont make the HoF, but that's OK, he was still a pretty good player.

I've never been a fan of Tkachuk and I honestly think the state of his face is sadder than his impending retirement. He had a few great years though.

A hard-nosed unafraid skilled guy who disn't think he was too important to throw down when the situation called for it - something every teamwould like to have and sadly something there just aren't that many of anymore. I could take him or leave him personally, but he's my favorite type of player, a true powerforward.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

I'll always remember Tkachuk as a Coyote, back when they had those hideous jerseys. Seamed like that guy would always burn us. I remember their top line was Tkachuk, Roenick and someone else. And they always played us really tough. He definitely had a great career. Too bad he had to finish it out with the crappy blues..


At one point they had some guy called Drake on that line with them...

Tkachuk's hat trick against the wings game 3 2002 lead the Blues to a 6-1 victory and sent Hasek to the showers.

Let's keep to the subject; not who won the '2002' series or who won the '91' series, or who leads in the all time games played between the two teams.

Tkachuk is one of four NHL players with 1,000 points and 2,000 penalty minutes and
30 th all time in goals scored with 538 sandwiched between Stan Mikita
Frank Mahovlich both Hall of Famers

Any former Winnipeg Jets left in the NHL next season? With Selanne and Tkachuck retiring you have to think we are near the end.

Shane Doan, and Nikolai Khabibulin would be the only remaining former Winnipeg Jets left in the NHL. Thats if Kris Draper doesn't decide to retire :yowza: :banana:

oh Edit: i will miss tkachuk. great player..and was a big fan of his back when he was a jet...

later on his career however my feelings towards him change when this happened...

draper should outlast all of the former Jets : D

goodbye to Tkachuck; nothing really against him personally. seemed like an ok dude. another childhood hockey memory going to bed- and i feel weird. i remember being between 7-10 and me and my friends trying to trade hockey cards and us making fun of his name.
