EDM: Heatley
ATL: Gilbert, Cogliano, 1st 09

Atlanta gets a solid package in return for the soon to be UFA Kovalchuk. Ottawa gets a sniper back, and Edmonton gets a star Alberta boy to build their offense around.
So Atlanta gets the shaft, and does it while involving themselves in a trade with player who left a stain on himself and the franchise before he left town.
