Just finished an interview with Don Waddell about what’s next for the Thrashers now that the draft is over and free agency begins tomorrow. I will be writing a story for Thursday’s paper. It will be online tomorrow.
He’s obviously not going to tip his hand about what’s in the works, but something could get done with Toronto. They are still in talks.
So, I asked him what are the chances that Dany Heatley, who wants to be traded, and Marian Hossa, who becomes a free agent tomorrow, could return to the Thrashers.
After reminding me he could not speak specifically about each player because they are under contract with another team, Waddell did add: “That probably doesn’t make a lot of sense for us.”
There you have it. Stay tuned because I really think there will be movement if not this week, then next week.
