Despite rumors linking the Thrashers to a possible trade for a defenseman, Waddell said the team is not currently in the market for that position. He said the team is comfortable having Mark Popovic in the minors, knowing they could recall him at any time if necessary. Also, Garnet Exelby (mononucleosis) could be back in another week.
Other rumors have linked the Thrashers to free-agent defenseman Brian Leetch. His agent, Jay Grossman, confirmed that he had discussions with Waddell about Leetch, but Grossman would not reveal when.
