Rick Dudley Says Thing

Vivlamore sez:

Thrashers general manager Rick Dudley is actively looking to make a trade to improve a struggling team on the verge of falling out of the playoff race.

Dudley told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday that there is a heightened sense of urgency following a 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders Tuesday.

As of last night, yes [we are actively looking for a trade],” Dudley said. “Are we looking to do something? Absolutely. We don’t want to let this go. Obviously we haven’t given up on the season. It would be ludicrous. We haven’t given up on improving either. If it doesn’t come from within, it will come from outside.”

"if it doesn't come from within, it will come from outside." Surely that's some kind of Zen koan.

I want Spezza. Have no idea what we have that Ottawa would want that we could afford to give up, but it's worth a try. Maybe they just want salary relief and a few prospects(Machacek & Kulda?). Acquiring a legit number one center has to be looked into. Spezza is still young, too.

Based on what they got for Heatley, I would say Ottawa might give up Spezza for Valabik and Stewart. Or maybe a Wetzel-Dog if we throw in the mustard.

I don't know. Those Wetzel Dogs are pretty good. We might have to get some draft picks back.
