bogosian has been fantastic

best d-man on the roster...maybe even better than enstrom

he makes great decisions wiht the puck and chips in on offense when needed

he had his first multi-goal game tonight scoring his 8th and 9th in just 46 games

defense is definately on the upswing

bogosian, oystrick, valabik, salmela, lewis, and wilson have all seen ice time as rookies and with the exception of lewis and wilson have been regulars on the roster. enstrom is only in his 2nd year, hainsey has looked bad lately but was our best earlier in the season. exelby has played some of the best hockey of his career the past 2 months

with a lehtonen playing at his best every night it would be hard to score more than 2 goals on them every night

Next year we're going to have Kovalchuk, Peverley, White, Little, Kozlov, and either Armstrong or maybe Duschene or Kane in our top six. We don't need top six forwards. We need two good vets that are decent on the PK and perhaps one stay at home defenseman.

What we really need is a reliable starter in net.

great to hear. jones and lupul for bogosian?

don't think the flyers would be able to help much in terms of bottom-6 forwards, we don't have too many ourselves (unless you like asham, who has dazzled at times this season).

Great sense of humor

Bogosian is a stud. In just 46 games, he broke the team record for goals scored by a rookie D-man (prior record was 5, matched by Enström last season). He's approaching the record scored by any Thrashers D-man.

This kid could rival Green's goal total in a few seasons.

yeah, i'm liking what i've heard about bogosian thus far. with him, doughty, and sbisa all showing what they're made of, last year's draft was one hell of a defensemen's year.

And yeah, a PPG #1 center and former captain that lead his team to two consecutive conf finals has no value. That's why a half a dozen teams were trying to sign Briere, Drury and Gomez, that's why Mont offered Briere more money than he got in Philly, that's why Gomez and Drury got more than Briere, because he has no value.
Briere is overpaid, which is why Philly posters are always trying to trade him on this board.

Atlanta might be willing to take a plunge and grab briere.

maybe briere+SJS3rd for lehtonen? not sure what kind of value kari is boasting these days; i've heard thrashers fans range from loving him to hating him.
Briere is an expensive luxury. Atlanta can not afford a guy like him and then re-sign Kovalchuk to an Ovechkin sized deal.

As for what Atlanta is looking, I think pretty much anyone.

They lack of everything.

Brière is top talent while Lethonen isn't. It would be a step. Not a big one but, hey, they should take whatever's available out there.
Well that's a pretty ignorant statement. Atlanta has lots of talented young D in their system. They have 2 goalies and another interesting goalie prospect. What Atlanta lacks is scoring talent--which is why there is interest in JVR.

There is NO INTEREST in an over paid, small injury prone center over 30 for a club that is trying to get younger!

The Thrashers have finally been trying to build up through the draft and not bring in high-priced free agents with limited long term value. Trading for Briere would be counterproductive to that.

And Briere isn't going to Atlanta anyways.

To be fair, fans of other teams are often coming up with the trade proposals, and they usually want him for next to nothing. $6.5 million cap hit is completely appropriate for a guy who has been a PPG since the lockout. He is simply superfluous for the Flyers now, as we have two other PPG centers.

A PPG guy is good and all, but you have to consider that Atlanta is looking to be a contender with a young core. Briere just doesn't fit that, though being a PPG player does show that he is valuable to any organization that has him.

He's just not the right fit for Atlanta.

I agree. I just wanted to refute what Falconer was claiming. It was inaccurate.
