TSN's McKenzie: Atlanta's Kovalchuk to be "traded tonight"

He goes on to say via Twitter the destination is not the Rangers or Boston.

The Southeast landscape could be very different in a few hours. The Thrashers are all but certain to get a bountiful return to complement an already competitive club. SBN's Atlanta site Bird Watchers Anonymous has put in some sleepless nights on this story, and this evening looks to be no different.

Lotsa talk about the Devils so far.

Are the Panthers soon to be in serious catch-up mode? Stay tuned...

UPDATE: New Jersey it is. More to come as the info flows in, but In Lou We Trust and the aforementioned BWA are on it.
