If you look at what DW responded with, it's exactly what he said before aquiring Heatley. Could someone like Seto be the centerpiece? Petrecki? Clowe?

It'd be more than Seto and Petrecki. Probably two NHLers and one prospect.

Clowe, Mitchell, Shelley and Huskins would allow him to fit under the cap with $1,000,000 in cap space by my ****** calculations, but it is

NOT

GOING

TO HAPPEN

I want nothing more than Kovalchuk on this team. He's one of my favorite players in the entire league. He's a warrior and a beast, and instantly makes us the SC favorites, but it's just not going to happen. I do think he'll be in the division though (LA) by the deadline.

clowe, mitchell, petrecki

maybe seto instead of mitchell but i wouldn't do that. i wouldn't even trade for kovy. if we're gonna high roll it, get a solid top 4 dman.

I could see DW heavily pursuing Kovy just to drive the price up for the other contenders (Chicago, Detroit, LA, etc).

Doug Wilson would have to be the most stupid person in the world to trade for him.

There's just a shade over $500k in cap space available.

Not sure exactly, but someone mentioned Clowe, Murray, top prospect would get it done cap wise.

from Spectors Hockey:
Quote:
USA TODAY'S Kevin Allen reported via Twitter there are unnamed "surprise teams" in the mix for Kovalchuk and the Thrashers will get a better return than that they got for Marian Hossa two years ago.
and
Quote:
TSN.CA: Bob McKenzie reports Kovalchuk at this point remains a rental player as Thrashers management still refuse to allow teams permission to talk contract with him so as not to transfer power into the hands of the Kovalchuk camp. GM Don Waddell has told teams he won't make this a "future considerations" trade as he wants to put bona fide NHL players in the lineup to keep their playoff hopes alive this season.

I'd do Heatley for Kovy. That's about it. If DW ruins the depth of this team even more, he should be canned.

Haha, like DW is trading Heater back to Atlanta. And losing his 4 or 5 (or whatever) years left on his deal for a marginal RENTAL upgrade (Let's not kid ourselves, I think he's KHL bound).

I agree that Kovy is better, and I agree that our pool shouldn't be depleted further for a forward. That said...

Kovy won't be a Shark. If he is, I'll eat my hat.

Kovy to the Sharks will never happen. I doubt that the Thrashers are going to get anything substantial for him, given that he most likely will end up in Russia next year. No one is going to pay him anywhere near $10m+/yr with a long term deal. His offensive numbers are inflated playing on a mediocre team in a crappy division. If he plays in the west, his production would drop by 20% to 30%.

That's true. But getting Kovalchuk just seems even more absurd than getting Heatley was. Way more. I'll eat my hat too if it happens

especially since the Sharks dont have the cap space to do it. IF the heater deal didnt happen I could see it but its a tough one to believe unless he has a man crush on nabby.

Heh, yeah, I was joking. Getting Kovy pretty much doesn't make sense to me. Of course, I thought getting Heatley made no sense, so maybe we'll all be eating hats.

If it were Mitchell and Clowe going we would look something like this...

Heatley-Thornton-Marleau
Kovalchuk-Pavelski-Seto
McGinn-Malhotra-Ortmeyer
Shelley/McLaren-Nichol-Staubitz

Never gonna happen but that would be pretty sweet.
