VANCOUVER - The first trade on draft day was hardly the blockbuster everybody expected.

The Atlanta Thrashers sent winger Patrick Stefan and defenceman Jaroslav Modry to Dallas for winger Niko Kapanen.

Teams continue to talk as the draft gets under way. There is talk the Lightning might trade their first round pick to the Philadelphia Flyers for goalie Robert Esche.

Meanwhile, Edmonton GM Kevin Lowe is working hard to deal with the Rangers and Panthers for a trade involving defenceman Chris Pronger.
