I would say a realistic cap hit you could expect in Atlanta for Kovalchuk is about 10 million, but traded to a consistent contender and great hockey market. I have a feeling he would settle for a front loaded contract with a cap hit of around 8+ like the Irish said.

I am not nuts on giving up Giroux, and contract-wise, I wonder if it would be smarter to deal Coburn. But this deal would definitely need to be contingent upon an extension.
