But if the feeling is that Kovalchuk won't be re-signing wouldn't in be in the best interest of the Thrashers to trade him this season or at least before next season starts? His stock won't be as high next season when he's nearing Free Agency.

Surely they must have held some sort of preliminary discussions as to the future of Kovalchuk and what he wants to do. At least I would if I had a player of that caliber on my team and he was only a year away from Free Agency.

I think Atlanta will trade Kovy to other superstar like Gaborik... Atlanta lives up on Kovy atm and if they dont have any superstars crowd will be cut with heavy hand.
