They don't have the space to spend, nor the players Atlanta would want and/or players we're willing to lose.

Frov+first this year+ Decent prospect/Brad Richardson/Scott Parse? total joke but whatever of we took him and resinged him we could say goodby to Johnson,Doughty and others down the road... Not worth 11 mill
No way Kovalchuk is traded while negotiations are still going on. Even if they end and it is 100% that he won't re-sign, DW will (or at least should) wait until the deadline, since that is where he will get maximum return.
Too funny, even if the rumor were to be "true," why the hell would Atlanta be interested in Damaged Goods Demitra?
His contract is up at the end of the year. Demitra would just be a short-term fill-in for Kovy and a cap dump for the 'nucks.
Not that I think this rumour is true, but the only way it would make sense is if Demitra was going back the other way.
