Personally I pull for ATL in these cases, I like to see teams that develop players retain them when it's time for that player to hit the bonus. That said, with the cap likely going down next year, the typical players for a Kovalchuk are going to be in a world of hurt making a big contract work. So why does that leave for him? Teams like us and Atlanta.
