Brady Tkachuk' situation is still dragging in the mud as I write this brief post. The NHL's top power forward has yet to sign a new deal with the Ottawa Senators. Yet, according to the rumors circulating, he has a $64 million (eight-year) offer on the corner of the table. But it doesn't look like he's happy about that, having left (or will leave) St. Louis for Michigan.

Tkachuk will join Ann Arbor, a large city in Michigan, to skate with the USNTDP (USA Hockey National Team Development Program). He is expected to stay there until next Thursday and then head back to St. Louis, where he lives during the summer. However, plans could change as a deal with the Ottawa Senators could happen at any time.

However, according to Shawn Simpson (TSN), nothing seems to be imminent in this file that is dragging on... There is some chatter, but in Ottawa, they are talking about Tkachuk as the real deal, as the future captain of the ship, which is true. However, in this case, shouldn't he be the real thing? Shouldn't he be signing a deal to join his teammates for the opening of training camp? I'm tickled about this...
