Via TSN, the Atlanta Thrashers have traded Niclas Havelid to the NJ Devils for Anssi Salmela.
Stop me if you're heard this before, but the Thrashers are in rebuilding, remodeling and/or rejiggering mode and, rather than hang on to a UFA to be, they get their hands on a young defensemen forecasted to be a top six guy that they can build around.
In exchange, the Devils get a guy who will join Martin, Oduya and White on defense...who are we kidding, this sick team just got sicker. I mean, come on. Knock it off. We all get it, you're really good.
