Weight Wanted To Win In St. Louis

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The holdup in the deal was Weight’s no-trade clause, which he waived reluctantly. Weight spent six seasons in St. Louis, re-signing with the club in 2006 after winning a Stanley Cup in Carolina.

When asked how the deal unfolded and why he waived his no-trade clause, Weight said: “I just don’t feel like I want to comment on that. It is what it is ... Over the last 15 years, I’ve developed a pretty good reputation and I’m an honest person. I have no need to leave this city throwing mud, you know. I’m not going to comment on how it went down. If somebody asks me, I’ll tell them ... and I guarantee my teammates and friends will know exactly what happen.”...

“There’s nothing more I wanted than to try and win here,” Weight said. “It was an exciting atmosphere at the beginning of the year. Sometimes things happen that aren’t in your control. Some things aren’t always as they seem.”
