Thrashers pick up Tkachuk

by Dan Bilicki In: Ice Hockey

In a move that doesn’t really make a ton of sense, the Atlanta Thrashers traded for one of the premier players available in NHL with the deadline coming up. The thing that doesn’t make sense is that Atlanta is already very talented on the wings and could’ve used a centre more than a winger like Tkachuk. This move does help the Thrashers in the grit department which they have been lacking but what they gave up in this deal, first, second and third-round draft picks over the next two draft and Glen Metropolit, should be considered as mortgaging their future. This is a big splash move but it isn’t enough to bring a championship to the dirty south.
