Sports: Atlanta Thrashers 

Sun., March 7

Former ATLANTA THRASHERS captain Ilya Kovalchuk allegedly turned down offers of $70 million and $101 million this month to remain with the organization, instead opting for a trade to the New Jersey Devils. Yup, New Jersey. That's how hockey works. Everything is backward. Fighting is OK. White people are the most athletic people in the sport, and New Jersey is a more acceptable destination than the ATL. But players like Maxim Afinogenov, Tobias Enstrom and Vurgod Punknshooter (we made that one up) still deserve your attention. See the younger, new-look Thrashers skate against the hated Carolina Hurricanes. $10-$300. 5 p.m. Philips Arena, 1 Philips Drive. 866-715-1500. thrashers.nhl.com.
