Absolutely. I think Kovalchuk is smart enough to realize that 50 goals from him would go a long way in terms of changing the fortunes of this team. Especially when he'd be playing along side one of the best wingers in the game in Gaborik.
If he makes it to free agency, there's a good chance he'll be a Ranger. However, I don't see that happening, and I don't see Sather parting with the necessary assets at the deadline to acquire him. Certainly not if we're in contention for a lottery pick.
