To Atlanta: F Dustin Byfuglien, F Ben Eager, D Brent Sopel, F Akim Aliu
To Chicago: F Marty Reasoner, F Jeremy Morin, FJoey Crabb, 24th overall pick in 2010, 54th overall pick in 2010.
To get under the league limit of 50 contracts (which I was unaware of), the Thrashers sent F Brett Sterling, D Michael Vernace and a 7th round pick in this year's draft to San Jose, for future considerations.
As predicted, because of cap space the Hawks had to dump salary somehow. The deal just has to be confirmed by the NHL.
Also of importance for the coming weeks, the cap has been set at $59.4 million which is up $2.6 million from last season.
