Don't want anything at all to do with Brian Campbell. One albatross in Huet is enough thank you.
i know sharp is good but what do we do with him until either white or peverley leave next season

I sell high on Peverley. Put Sharp in his spot

You guys do know that Sharp is more of a winger than a centre? He can play centre and he did so this year for a while but he prefers to play wing and he is more effective there.

Really underrating Sharp there. He's one of the best supporting wingers around. Would probably be good for 50-60 points, with excellent physical and two way play. Would also substantially improve your PK, especially now that Stuart is gone.

If I'm Atlanta I take the deal. Sharp would look good as a RW to Kovalchuk, he'd look good on a gritty scoring 3rd line with Armstrong and reasoner or Kane, he'd look good on the first unit PK, he'd look good on the 2nd unit PP. Though Chicago is moronic if they're keeping Versteeg over Sharp, who brings a ton more to the table. And Atlanta really needs to do something about their lack of elite playmaking centers.

I'd take Sharp, but I really don't want Huet.

I'm high on Lehtonen as well.

I'd be willing to part ways with Pavelec, though. I imagine if this became a three-way deal (and for all intents of purposes, I'm not advocating a three-way by any means), you might find a buyer for Huet. Atlanta's not interested in him, though.

Even if it's been noted before, it's worth saying again: the Thrashers have an internal cap of roughly $46M. With the RFA raises they still have to give, and possibly adding a moderately priced bottom 6 forward, they will be at their cap. And it is very unlikely that they'll go significantly over this figure unless it is adventageous to them.

So Huet would be a no-go. Yeah, you can find drawbacks to both Lehtonen and Pavelec. But there's no logical reasoning why they would trade one of them and get Huet back. He would have to put up fantastic numbers to justify that salary; while he may well be a legit #1, it's unlikely he'll be worth that price tag. With two goalies who could can likely be starters, there's no logic in Atlanta getting Huet (especially adding that salary to a team that's not very willing to spend much). At least from Atlanta's perspective, sorry, but the Hawks are stuck with that salary.

As for Sharp, he is a pretty underrated and very useful winger. But if he is the bait to get Atlanta to accept Huet as well, it's still a no-go. As good as he is, the Thrashers don't need to replace a goalie and take on a bunch of extra salary too. If this were a proposal just about Sharp, then I'd definitely like to go through the scenarios of trying to get him. But the two of them together, gotta say no way.

The Hawks aren't in cap trouble this year, but more than likely they will be next year. Despite some postings I've read to the contrary, it is very likely the cap will fall next year (by how much is still up in the air). A simple knowledge of economics will tell you that; pick up an econ text at the library, shouldn't take much reading to find this out. So every team is keeping their eye on that, and trying to keep a buffer so they don't get squeezed next year. Teams like Atlanta don't have to worry much because they were never gonna get close to the $56M mark this year or next. But you can bet whatever money you have that teams in good cap position aren't gonna take on salary unless it really really helps them (ie, they're gonna look to bend over the teams being squeezed, so to speak).
I don't see this deal helping Atlanta enough to take on that extra salary. That was a long way to basically say "no deal" but I though it was worth the effort.
