Keith Tkachuk seems to be seriously considering retirement.
"I know that I can still play, but it’s been a long time . . . a lot of hard games, a lot of hard years. I’ll talk to my wife and take to Larry (Pleau) and we’ll make a decision. (But) I love this game. I love these guys," Tkachuk said. He's scored 537 goals and 1,061 points in 1,191 career games. Tkachuk's fantasy value has significantly diminished and it looks like he will fail to reach the 20-goal milestone for the first time since 2005-06, when he was limited to just 41 games. If he chooses to continue to play hockey in 2010-11, he can still provide some offensive depth and veteran leadership to a young Blues team, but he won't have any fantasy value.
