any prospects coming back in a kovalchuk trade need to be offensive because that is where we don't have much depth in the system. kozlov is retiring after this year and with no kovalchuk afinogenov and possibly armstrong don't re-sign here, that's 4 of your top 9 wingers gone. atlanta needs one good nhl winger back in a trade for kovalchuk and more winger prospects.

just because that package may be more valuable than kovalchuk doesn't mean it makes any sense at all for the thrashers to do it. there is no reason at all to trade for something you already have.
