Are we discussing and evaluating the creation of a rumour ? Is that the difference between a "trade idea" and a "trade rumour idea"?
It's pre-season talk!

But to get him would mean breaking up the team we have. We also only have 1 mm in cap room at the moment. Makes no sense on a lot of levels
Waddle has been horrible in Atlanta. He just mite be foolish enough to do this(trading Kovalchuk). Personally, he is on is way out. Sure some will say he just did have some odd move. Heatly, Savard, Hossa, these guys or all top 30 at their position wen it come to numbers. The ship is sinking and fast.
Personally, it's not a good timing to get a guy like that. You built with this kind of player. We are looking for tweaks, not shocking. Atlanta would never get a great offer from a contender. By this I mean a few roster players. Never mind picks, I'm sure if Atlanta said to Bob, "hey what about all of your team's picks in the next draft, for Kovalchuk" . Bob Jumps on a plane and head to Atlanta to shake hand with Kovalchuk.

To point here is Kovalchuk, Mtl can't afford him in a trade.
