I could be wrong, but aren't there many, many teams who could give ATL a far better deal for Kovalchuk? Higgins, white and a first? Really?
That would be a somewhat decent return for Kovalchuck. At this point every GM knows that Atlanta can't keep him. This situation mirrors the Roy Halladay and Johan Santana trades. The team Kovy is going to still has to pay him. That, and the fact that Atlanta is supposedly stopping Kovy's agent from negotiating with other teams isn't helping Wadell. I'm not saying Higgins, White, and first would or should get this done, in large part because Higgins is a glorified third liner. I would think that yes, Calgary would need to include a better player then Higgins. That being said, it might get it done.
