Kings fan here. I think this is a Gaborik type situation. I think Kovalchuk is just not into it. I remember when the Wild Offered Gaborik an 8 year 8.8 million dollar contract and he decided to take less to go to LA or NY. LA didnt want to pay him more then 6 because of the injury problems.

I kinda feel for Atlanta at this point because it would suck for fans to loose a player like Kovy. It could actually really hurt what I hear is a poor PR factory over there.

Good luck. Im sure LA will enter the bidding if Kovalchuk does go. Hell you might be able to get Schenn out of us. And Bogo, Kane, Schenn would be a great core to build around.
