Excellent post Re-Hab. Well said.
Montreal is not, and will never be, in the Kovalchuk sweepstakes.
As a matter of fact, I don't see him getting traded at all.
Two teams that come to mind that will throw the bank at him come July 1st is Toronto, and should Phoenix get it's ownership straightened out I believe they will get in on this to try to get that superstar.
No doubt Brian Burke has July 1st circled on his calender with the hopes of landing this guy, unfortunately he has a lot of other holes to fill and outside of keeping the on-ice product exciting I think his money is better spent elsewhere (such as trying to solidify the goaltending, getting a true #1 center, more Top-6 depth). They already have a mini-Kovalchuk in Kessel.
Phoenix on the other hand, like I said if they can get their act together.. They are a good team, imagine landing a player like Kovalchuk to bolster them? They'd be great for YEARS.
