Im not sure I would throw the bank to get him if I'm a GM to be honest. A team right on the brink of winning right now would make a pitch but a borderline team like Boston or Calgary would be taking a massive risk to trade too many young assets for Kovy imo.
I would love to see Boston give up a bunch of youth and picks just like Toronto did to get Kessel. I doubt they could beat Washington or Pittsburgh anyway.
