If Cammalleri is signed by Atlanta for 7 million+ to fill a more or less phantom need, do you really expect to be able to sign Kovalchuk for under 10 million a year?
Scoring and a guy who can play W or C on the top scoring line is a phantom need? Do you even watch this team? Kovalchuck needs someone who can create space. Someone who will draw attention fromt he fact that he is the only guy on the ice for the Thrashers who can score from anywhere on the ice. When did "Atlanta Thrashers" and "Too much scoring" or "solid first line combination" last get mentioned in the same sentence?

And don't worry about Kovalchuck becoming a perimeter guy and squandering his talent. He's done ok on the PP over the last 3 or 4 years.
