Trade Hits Small Snag

Per tweets from Chris Vivlamore, the Thrashers reporter for the AJC, the trade has not become official yet. The Thrashers currently have 51 players under contract, and the league max is 50. The easy solution would be to send one more prospect back in the trade (Falconer suggested sending Michael Forney, and I don’t disagree). Regardless of how this gets resolved, it will, as Bob McKenzie of TSN said, have to wait for the draft, which means the trade might not be official until Friday or Saturday at the earliest.
