I also have a problem with Gainey willing to pay 3.5M$ for a guy like Bonk but unwilling to pay the extra million for a true superstar like Kovalev.

The kings made out like bandits on this one. The sens dumped a salary and the habs accepted the dump while giving a quality player away.
On the open market I don't think Kovy gets that much more than Bonk. Bonk doesn't have the offensive flair, but he offers qualities that Kovalev does not, qualities teams are willing to pay big bucks for (see: Holik).
