This makes sense to me. As much as we'd like to think Sather is some kind of mind manipulator and master of sweet deals, there is no way Sutter doesn't know how poorly Ales has been for us. If Calgary needs Higgins as part of putting together a package for Atlanta, they're not going to give him to them without a little something for the Rangers. Which in this case looks like them taking Ales off their hands. In the meantime to make it work salary wise the Rangers take back an underachiever they wanted gone anyway which can only benefit them since his contract burns up this season.
I don't see how that isn't a plausible scenario for anyone doubting Kovalchuk's involvement. It definitely adds up to me.
Edit: Or Richards or Vinny L. for that matter.
