Boys, plays like Kovy do not come around too often. His name is rightfully spoken in the same breath as Ovechkin and Crosby. Getting an elite talent like that, if you can do it for the loss of one roster player (Kopitar included) is to me a no brainer.

From Atlanta's perspective, it stings less because they arguably get a big star back who is locked up.

From the Kings' perspective, they get that elite talent they are missing at the forward position and wished Kopitar to become

I am by no means begrudging Kopitar. For goodness sake, I am the nut that started the whole Kopitarian thing but there are certain players in this league that if you can get them at the price they are worth, you do it. Kovy has been the Thrashers franchise. He can be ours at the forward position.
