Terrible idea. We'll have trouble re-signing Plekanec, we can't possibly sign Kovalchuk who's going to ask 10m/yr. Since Plekanec is not enough to bring Kovalchuk we'll need to add A LOT of assets, probably young players with little or no cap hit.

In the end we will lose :

-Plekanec, who we are very likely to re-sign
-Draft picks (probably)
-Young players (definitely)
-A vet to make Kovalchuk fit on the cap temporarily

for :

-a few weeks of Kovalchuk who's going to have no support because we'll gut our depth to get him
