It's not like you'll get many players who want to play in Atlanta like Kozlov and possibly Antropov.

Don't expect Atlanta to remain competitive without Kovy next season. Expect another "rebuild" instead.

No, that team is absolutely brutal.
Well here's a surprise, just so happens double D perfectly described the whole Thrashers and Kovy situation in his post. NOT!! (as in its not a surprise..I expect this kind of quality post from this particular poster) seriously read this guy's posts...it wouldn't surprise me if he becomes a major player in the film industry in the next few years and his hockey analysis is top notch. Don't let his humbleness fool you...this guy is the real deal.

I'm gonna have to agree with this poster on this particular issue.
Like DeepOrangeW Dow said, Kovy is a BIG part of the thrashers team and it would be a HUGE loss if he decided to leave.

Some call me Wishy-Washy but I gotta side with Dow jones on this one folks.
