Kovalchuk Trade Offers–What Could a Trade Bring to Atlanta? – Bird Watchers Anonymous

Here’s a good one from a Thrashers blog, with my comments:

LA gets Kovalchuk

So far so good. I like it.

ATL gets Braydon [sic] Schenn –

Now hold on!

Thomas Hickey

First of all, the guy’s name is spelled B-R-A- — what? HICKEY? Instead of Schenn? AND SCHENN? Is that all you want?

Wayne Simmonds

I have to assume this is a practical joke at this point. Let’s read on and enjoy:

– and a conditional 1st.

Wait, we give Atlanta a conditional first? What’s the condition? If we ever finish in the bottom ten, we send them that pick?

This doesn’t really affect the Kings’ roster while adding a huge scorer in Kovy.

First of all: HAHAHAHA. Second: Simmonds is the Kings best RW the remainder of the season, certainly in the top-six forwards, and at worst a fixture on the stopper line. He’s a huge presence. He’s a fan favorite. He’s still a kid. And he is getting better every day. Schenn will not join the Kings (or Manchester) until his junior season is over, but I wouldn’t rule out him making an impact on the big club. He came close to making the team out of camp. Who else did you get? Oh, Hickey. Well, he’s hurt right now. So that part of it won’t impact the Kings roster this season. I’ll give you that.

LA has so many young prospects I would think that while losing two of their best


it still wouldn’t hurt their long term plan whether Kovy resigns or not.

WHETHER HE RE-SIGNS OR NOT?? Wait, we give up all that and he hasn’t agreed to re-sign?

A reasonable offer for a Kovalchuk rental would be something like: nothing. Not even the fee for the gaming license, which I would appreciate if you would put up personally.

    If I thought it worth my time to register for SB Nation, I’d leave reply asking that guy. “Isn’t it painful to talk out of your ass like that?”

    Even the offer by the Kings SB Nation writer (whoever that is) is absurd. JMFJ and Teubert and a 1st rounder for half a season of Kovalchuk? I would not part with either of those players (much less both + a pick) for half a season of Kovalchuk at this point.
