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.
1st round draft pick in 2010 (from Toronto)
1st round draft pick in 2010 (Boston's)
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.
