Hawks GM Talks Trade Deadline

from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

Already there have been whispers of the Hawks possibly getting involved in the Ilya Kovalchuk sweepstakes should the Atlanta Thrashers decide before the deadline they can’t re-sign their star winger.

Bowman didn’t come out and say flatly the Hawks would have no interest in Kovalchuk.

“I’m not going to comment on individual players, but what we’re going to do over the next few weeks is meet and figure out where we think it makes sense to add, whether it’s that type of a player or a different style or a different position,” Bowman said.

“At that point we’ll see what the price is to get that guy, and we’ll see if it’s going to make our team better. I don’t want to rule anything in or rule anything out because we really haven’t gotten down the path that far.”

According to Bowman, the Hawks have enough money under the cap to add a player without giving up one.
