If Atlanta made this trade I actually think it would be considered worse than what they got for Hossa
Of course it would be considered worse. Atlanta needs a marketable name to keep the fans they have. Trading Kovy without getting a yound dynamic prospect would leave them nothing but picks, very early draft position, but could easily cause the franchise to brankrupt due to lack of fan interest. Kovy is the biggest name drawing fans into the seats as it stands now.
