since no other team claimed him, he would have been free to trade.
Except that Atlanta wouldn't have known if another team laid claim to him until after they had placed a claim themselves.

And I assure you, the sole reason the Thrashers acquired him was to trade for an inflated price at the deadline.

Not to mention, by trading for him instead of simply claiming him, they get him cheaper cause they are able to send off some contracts.
