The main problem is their lack of a true offensive defenseman(sorry Peter). Tremblay is finally playing his way off of the Thrashers, and Kaberle is a very well rounded player but I would not call him terribly offensive minded.

The Thrashers IMO have perhaps too many "tough guy" defensive d-men. Sutton, Majesky, Exelby, Tamer, and have added both JLGP and Kloucek this year, the last thing they need is yet another one.

Tarnstrom would be a welcome addition to the team. The problem is the Thrashers are not terribly deep on prospects. Stefan is the Thrashers best defensive forward, so I do not see him going anywhere. Slater is probably the Thrashers most valuable non-NHL asset other than Lehtonen and Coburn.

Slater-Tremblay for Tarnstrom-middle of the pack forward prospect
I am not a big fan of Tremblay but I can see this
Slater/Tremblay for Tarnstrom/Murley
