So, in my opinion Boston is in the perfect position to make the move for Kovalchuk, I know that we don't want to hear this, but Boston can contend this season with him.

To Atlanta:

1st round draft pick in 2010 (from Toronto)
1st round draft pick in 2010 (Boston's)
Joe Colborne
Brad Marchand
Jeff LoVecchio

To Boston:

Ilya Kovalchuk
2nd round draft pick in 2010
I can't see Boston paying anything close to that, Toronto's 1st could be Taylor Hall. At the end of the day this is a rental player with no playoff track record. As much as he could be a difference maker it will be a situation where Atlanta will have to drop their demands by a lot or end up not moving him.

Also, Brad Marchand is maybe out for the year with a broken leg.
