As great as Kovalchuk is, I dont see him fitting with the players that would remain on this team if we trade for him.
Kovalchuk is the kind of player who doesn't need a setup man, he carries the puck, shoots and scores. But a Kovalchuk line could benefit with a slick puck handling center with defensive capabilities. Namely Claude Giroux. You put a grinder on the right to clean up Ilya's rebounds and you've got a very dangerous line

Kovalchuk-Giroux-Hartnell
Gagne-Richards-Pyorala/Powe
JVR-Briere-Asham/Powe
Carcillo-Betts-Laperriere

Pronger-Carle
Timonen-Parent/Marshalll
Bartulis-Syvret/Marshall
