He has the size and plays the grit game, do you think Atlanta would want to part with him for the right price?
He has a lot of character and grit and I think he'd be perfect along side Andrei and Plekanec. Would do a lot of the work down low and isn't shy about getting his nose dirty.
He's currently on the Thrashers 3rd line (which is more like a 2nd line / scoring line) with Peverley and Kane, and has an A on his jersey. He's a pending UFA and I'm 99% sure the Thrashers will be trying very hard to re-sign when they get the chance January 1st, so unless the Thrashers look to be out of the playoff race by then he's probably unavailable.
