Thing is.. if Filatov (or by saying Filatov, the Dispatch writers mean his agent or manager or his mommy), wanted a trade 10 days ago, think how different things were.

Looking at the depth chart, if Filatov thought he was still going to be in the dog house and stuck behind Calvert, Atkinson, Kubalik and any new wingers signed, then there was no future with the organziation.

Then the Carter trade happens, there might be more trades and he's asked on his Formspring yesterday about what he thinks of a Filatov-Carter-Nash line.

If Filatov lived up to his potential, that could be a great line or at least a power play unit. Stupid, stupid, stupid. He had his chance with the Jackets to take over Voracek's spot in the lineup. And he was a big baby and blew it.
