Tkachuk To Atlanta...Done Deal

As I told you all last night, before any media or blog was even talking about it, the Thrashers and Blues were close to a deal that would send Tkachuk to Atlanta. The deal is finally done and here are the details.

The Blues get a first round pick in 2007, a third round pick in 2007 and and second round pick in 2008 plus Glen Metropolit. If Atlanta re-signs Tkachuk, the Blues will receive an additional first round pick in 2008.

Quite a lot for a team to give up, especially when they're only 4 points ahead of the 9th place team....
