Atlanta Thrashers (seller): Havelid, who will be unrestricted free agent this summer, will be one of the hottest defensemen in the market place. Center Marty Reasoner could also be moved, and possibly Eric Perrin. GM Don Waddell has also received calls about his goaltenders Kari Lehtonen and Ondrej Pavelec, but he's not likely to make any goalie moves at this time. This week, he will start to talk to Lehtonen's agent about a new contract
Interesting to say the least, in regards to Kari. I do like that vanReimdyk a lot, but we are seriously lacking in defence at this time. Honestly we are doing pretty well in regards to our offense right now, and Kari is playing excellent. Maybe his injuries will go down. You never know.
Our young defence is getting better. They maybe just need time. Look at LA. They are so young in defence but have one of the best PKs in the league. Maybe Kulda will eventually come up as well as Postma. Also there is that young Russian prospect Andrei Zubarev who is supposed to be eventually good. Postma and Zubarev, if we can get Zubarev out of Russia, will need to go to the Wolves obviously and do their time to grow. If for maybe a year or two we could acquire a solid shut-down guy to help out, that'd be great. Maybe the blueline just needs time, and it will grow into something nice.
This is what he had to say about Philly to give a better picture on that rumor.
Philadelphia Flyers (buyer): The Flyers have reviewed their goaltending options, and even made a call or two about availability. But they aren't likely to find any attractive options at the deadline. They have shown some interest in acquiring a puck-moving defenseman.
