i don't think Kovy had 39 points in that one game difference. The point differntial between the two is basically the number 2 scorer for the Islanders. SJ needs to add a lot more.

But unless your sending back a franchise player to ATL they don't dump theres. He's only 25 and will proably stay in ATL until hes 39 and then the Rangers will sign him for 12 mil a season for 3 years.
A few things are terribly wrong with this post.

1. You used a bad year from Marleau and compared it to Kovalchuk.

2. Kovalchuk was outscored by Marleau in 07, when Kovalchuk had a stronger team than the one he had in 08.

3. As an Islander fan, I wouldn't be talking about handing out stupid contracts like you just did there. That Rick DiPietro contact is arguably the worst I've seen in quite some time, and I can honestly say that, being a Ranger fan.

To Anaheim:
- Ilya Kovalchuk

To Atlanta:
- Logan MacMillan
- Eric Tangradi
- Brendan Mikkelson
- 2009 1st-round pick
- 2010 2nd-round pick
Good luck getting Kovalchuk without giving up one of Getzlaf or Perry in the deal.

It'll probably take Getzlaf/Perry, a top prospect, top-4 defenseman, and 1 or 2 1st rounders, depending on who the prospect and the defenseman are.
