Thrashers GM Rick Dudley and President Don Waddell, who remains active in trade discussions, have been weighing their options and looking for ways to improve their team, as the Feb. 28 trade deadline inches closer.
The Thrashers have been scouting the Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Blackhawks, among other teams, this month.
Dudley would like to add another top-six forward and a gritty depth forward.
The Thrashers have a significant amount of available cap space (almost $18 million), but will not spend nearly that much. Ownership has given management the green light to add to the roster to boost the club's chances at locking in a playoff spot.
