If you want Coburn AND Exelby you would have to add Brewer at the very least. Laraque is the best tough guy in the league, but lets be honest. Tough guys have very little value, see what the B's got for Stock.
I certainly buy into the idea that a black hockey player would energize the African-American community in Atlanta, but the most important factor for attendance in the NHL is winning. Now Atlanta appears to have a decent team for the first time in its history the attendance should increase once college football season is over.
Despite the accident Dany Heatley is still 10 times the marketing draw that GL is, and with his talent Kovalchuk is also a far more lucrative marketing tool than GL will ever be.
Tough guys do have value, Look at Worrell. Besides, BG also abolutely owns the boards when he is down low, he drags D-men with him and tires them out. ANY GM in the league would jump at the chance for BG. He is the most sought after commodity on the Oilers according to Lowe.
