Kovalchuk's salary is 6.389 million a year

we only need to have 2.13 million of cap space at the trade deadline. For the 09-10 season he's under contract, but Brisebois will be gone, and so will Bouillon, Lang, Begin, Kostopoulos, Tanguay ?, Kovalev? Koivu?

Which one would u keep to fit in under the cap? If you bring in Kovalchuk

* Getting Kovalchuk is possible, because he probably doesn't want to stay in Atlanta past 09-10, we can move our 1st and 2nd round pick for him (or more) for his services in the playoffs and 09-10 then resigning him past 09-10.

Everything is possible,but do you have any idea what the return would be?Look at what the Trashers got in return for Hossa and make the Kovalchuk x 3
