NHL: Av’s in talks with Kings, Thrashers; Kari Lehtonen also involved?

Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan Smyth could be on the move as the Av’s are currently in talks with the Kings and Thrashers about the 32 yr old winger.
Discussions have centered Smyth going to either team with the Av’s flipping first round picks with the Kings or Thrashers.
The Avalanche are struggling financially and ownership wants Smyth’s contract off the books.
A deal with the Thrashers could be close but it is doubtful that Smyth will accept a trade to Altanta.
Kari Lehtonen could also be apart of a potential deal with the Av’s and Thrashers.
More Kings Rumors
A trade for Smyth doesn’t appear close from the Kings standpoint because the Kings are currently in the running to acquire Dany Heatley and Ryan Clowe.
If they miss out on both players before the draft begins, Smyth becomes a stronger possibility.
