The only way they take back Satan is to make the cap work. If Atlanta does that to help the pens cap situation, their would have to be a substantial sweetener to the deal...
oops, i thought the OP was citing an actual rumor. my bad.
satan could work in the deal though...he'd be a name on a nameless team. atl fans (all 37 of them) would have SOMEONE that they know at least. it would be a decent consolation for a rebuilding franchise.
could just staal and a 1st rounder be enough to get kovy? maybe throw in one of gill/eaton/scuderi? atl could potentially lock staal up during his RFA year relatively cheaply (it's getting more likely that he won't get a big payday) and make a splash with one of the big UFAs with a more even attitude than kovy.
