Schneider, Havelid and Kovalchuk Deals Enable to Chicago Trade


Over the last several years the Thrashers have been out of the playoff hunt and dealt roster players for assets. Yesterday those assets were exchanged for roster players.

  1. The Thrashers moved Mathieu Schneider to Montreal Canadiens for a 2nd rounder. That 2nd rounder resulted in Jeremy Morin who was the key player heading to the Chicago Blackhawks.
  2. Veteran Defenseman Nic Havelid was dealt for Anssi Salmela, who was later returned in the New Jersey Devils with Kovalchuk.
  3. Star Ilya Kovalchuk went to the Devils for Nicklas Bergfors, Johnny Oduya, Patrice Cormier a 1st rounder and a swap of 2nd rounders (those picks went to Chicago yesterday).

So if you look at the Thrashers organization depth chart today, we can say that Havelid, Schneider and Kovalchuk have been translated into Bergfors, Oduya, Byfuglien, Eager, Sopel along with prospects Akim Aliu and Patrice Cormier.
