Given we're in a good spot on March 3rd (5th-6th-7th) and that negociations with Plekanec are not going anywhere, I'd be tempted to pull a move for Kovalchuk. Let's say:

A. Kostitsyn
S. Kostitsyn
B. Maxwell
G. Laraque ()
1st 2010

vs

Kovalchuk

We'd have an option if Plekanec doesn't want to come back, and we'd gain some cap space for this summer.

Even without Plekanec going into 2010-2011:

Cammalleri (6M) - Deharnais (0,5M) - Kovalchuk (9M)
Pouliot (0,9M) - Gomez (7,3M) - Gionta (5M)
Moen (1,5M) - Metropolit (1,5M) - Pacioretty (0,875M)
White (0,6M) - Lapierre (1,25M) - Pyatt (0,6M)

Markov (5,75M) - Subban (0,875M)
Hamrlik (5,5M) - Spacek (3,83M)
Gorges (1,5M) - Gill (2,25M)

Price (3M)
______

= Around 57,73M, and the cap is projected to go up by about 1M this summer according to the last speculations.

is a lineup I'd be comfortable to ice in 2010-2011. Kovalchuk can pretty much carry a line on his back, and Deharnais would look good for sure with two great snipers like those on his wings.
