The Atlanta Thrashers are in Montreal Tuesday to play the Habs, and that means playing the fun game of – who to trade for Ilya Kovalchuk?
Kovalchuk, seen here in a photo with a lovely young lady who was overheard saying, “Why am I with this guy when I could be with Dennis,” was the subject of an earlier trade rumour involving the Canadiens. But alas, the rumour fizzled.
So now, I feel it’s my duty to get the rumour started again.
Sure, we’ll take Kovalchuk. And because we’re in a generous mood, here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna give Atlanta Alex Kovalev and Ryan O’Byrne!
Or how about Chris Higgins, Ryan O’Byrne, and Mathieu Dandenault?
Or what about Alex Kovalev and Georges Laraque?
I see nothing wrong with giving up Alex Kovalev and Guillaume Latendresse for Kovalchuk.
Surely Atlanta would take Saku Koivu and Patrice Brisebois for Kovalchuk.
Sergei Kostitsyn and Jaroslav Halak?
Or how about Jimmy Carson, Martin Gelinas, 3 first-round draft picks, and 15 million for Wayne Gretzky, Marty McSorley, and Mike Krushelnyski.
Oh, that’s another trade.
