Thought this was a little eye opening and deserved its own discussion.

So what's left of #Thrashers/#NHLJets Kovalchuk trade? Oduya gone, Bergfors gone. 1st-rd pick gone (to CHI for Buff Sopel). Cormier (AHL).

We both won.
They weren't keeping Kovy... they got some value for him > nothing.

If they count Oduya as gone, you have to balance that out by adding the 2 years of Oduya and the draft picks as assets gained.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Indirectly they got Bgufylen, who has acquired with one of the firsts they got in the trade.

I mean, people forget that Kovy said no to the contract in Atlanta, he definitely wasn't coming back after going UFA, so they basically got Bergfors, Cormier (who were both question marks), Oduya (solid defenseman, flipped him for picks now), and a 1st, all for 2 months of Kovalchuk that he would have spent there waiting to leave. I mean, yes, the Devils "won" in the sense that Kovalchuk long-term is better than Oduya and a pick long-term, but the Thrashers knew they wouldn't have Kovy long-term so it was all positive.

It's also interesting to look back though and see that everything has basically gone away for the Thrashers/Jets, but selling Oduya is a good move for them IMO.

You know the way that Winnipeg has gotten rid of everything from that trade kind of reminded me of the Joe Thornton trade where once Boston realised they got train wrecked in that deal they started systematically getting rid of all reminders of the trade.

... of course it ended up being kind of alright for them in the end but still.

I'm going to play devil's advocate and argue why Atlanta won the trade. Give me 10 minutes and I'll make up something. :D

If we're being fair, then we have to include the assets Winnipeg got for our assets too, in which I would include include Dustin Buff and a 2nd and a 3rd this coming draft. Even still, though, we robbed them unless they unearth a superstar in those spots in the next draft.

Can we count resigning Kovy as part of the trade? Since who knows if he would come here if he wasn't traded to us in the first place but it wasn't really apart of the trade
