Then you're crazy

Kovalchuk is the 2nd highest scorer since the lockout and plays a more physical game than Hossa. He's 25 years old and already had 2 50 and 2 40 goal seasons and 516 points up until now. Arguably top 5 player in the league, definitely top 10.

He's worth a lot more than Hossa. Staal + Whitney + 1st easily, assuming he resigns. And even then Atlanta laughs at that deal. If he finds chemistry with Malkin he's likely a 60-70 goal player, given what he's been putting up in Atlanta. Malkin's numbers go up even higher as well. What you're trading for is essentially the next best sniper there is in the game after Ovechkin.
