It has been reported that Don Waddell, Thrashers GM, has told Ilya Kovalchuk to expect a trade within the next few hours or days.
Please Peter, I beg you, do not sell the future to bring this guy to Boston for two months. Would it be incredibly fun to watch a more mature Marc Savard pass to him? Yes, but not at the expense of the future because I cannot picture a scenario in which:
A) Bringing him here leads us to a Stanley Cup
B) The Bruins keep him here after this year and are able to remain competitive (he wants too damn much money)
Don't panic PC!
