Here are a couple quotes from interview with Thrashers GM Rick Dudley following Friday’s trade with Boston.
On possibility of more trades before deadline: “I can’t say that happen. I can’t say that it wouldn’t either. If someone said the right thing to me. I would like to win a championship. I’d like to do it over a period of time. I can’t honestly say at this time that we are a Stanley Cup favorite so any deal that we make the definition of it has to be both present and future. We won’t do anything to take away our chances of making the playoffs this year. We also won’t trade for a 35-year-old player. If a deal comes along that can meet that criteria, then we will certainly entertain it.”
On possibility of trading Zach Bogosian: “People ask me that all the time. I say the same thing. Wayne Gretzky was traded. There are no untouchables that I know of. Certainly not in Atlanta. I’m not actively looking to trade Zach and I don’t expect to trade him.”
