Would this kill an Atlanta deal for you?

This is from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"The most talked about player -- and most available -- is restricted free agent Mike Comrie, 23, whose rights belong to Edmonton. The Thrashers likely would be able to obtain Comrie for 6-foot-5 prospect Braydon Coburn, 18, whom the Oilers tried to move up to pick at last summer's draft.

Waddell has been reluctant to part with the defenseman, saying, "Braydon Coburn isn't going anywhere."

So if you were in charge would this nix any deal with the Thrashers? For me, it would. I know people have talked about Stefan and Exelby, but the Oilers already have a Jason Smith-type d-man, and while Exelby will be a good player, I think the Oilers need to go for the homerun for once.

Personally, if Coburn wasn't on the table, I wouldn't even think of trading with Atlanta.
