To get Kovy in a Kings uniform is going to take more than Brown and a bunch of high to low end scrubs like Purcell, Moller and Drewiske. Atlanta to me would want a minimum of:
-Schenn or Bernier(they probably would start off by asking for both)
-at least a 1st round pick, possibly 2 of them
-Hickey and or Teubert
-and then you can talk about the Moller and or Purcell type guys
You have to give to get and Wadell will want the motherload as outside of Ovechkin, Kovalchuk might be the most exciting player in the league. Playing in Southern Georgia doesn't help his exposure. If Kovy were to come here I wonder if that might mean a Frolov resign and a bolt of energy as if you could somehow keep Schenn I could live with he or Kopitar centering those 2 for the next decade!

I doubt there is anything to this rumor. The thing is, DL has us in a position where we could trade for a player approaching his talent, without tearing apart the current roster.

i don't think they can ask for that much for an impending UFA and expect the return to be close... from any team.

that is a HUGE return.

I don't think either goalie named Jon will get traded, but I am a betting man and I would bet on Quick being traded before Bernier is.

The only way I think DL trades for Kovy is if he gets him to agree to an extension. IF he does get Kovy to do that (which is a long shot), I believe we could get him for Brown, Teubert, and Purcell (or Moller) and maybe a swap of picks or something like that.
Brown has a decent cap #, so that's attractive to a team like ATL. And Teubert and Moller were both 1st round picks. That is more than what they got for Hossa.
But the key is getting Kovy to agree to a deal. Think Roy Halladay and hope Kovy wants to play here.
and by the way, it could also come with us moving frolov to the eastern conference for a player and a pick. maybe pittsburgh for a grinder and a pick.

If I'm Atlanta I'm demanding Simmonds and one of either(Drewiske/Hickey) or (Teubert/Voynov)

my counter would be that i'd trade Brown and Moller before parting with Simmonds.

2/26/2008 Atlanta Thrashers traded Marian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Colby Armstrong, Erik Christensen, Angelo Esposito and a 1st-round selection in 2008.
