Armstrong
Christensen
Esposito (prospect)
1st round 08 : 29th overall = Daultan Leveillé

AS we all remember, Hossa was only a rental since he signed with Detroit afterward during the off season. Then so, by comparing to this trade, how about Montreal try to acquire Kovalchuk, who is much better than Hossa.

Proposal:

To Montreal:
Kovalchuk (UFA)
Brian Little(RFA '11) who is struggling this year.

To Atlanta:
Halak (RFA)
Pacioretty(better than Esposito)
Weber(we have Subban)
One of the K brothers.
1st round 2011 (weak draft .. Larsson and Couturier are the only interessing)
I like it in theory but how are we supposed to afford his salary without dumping any of ours? They'd have to take a contract like Hamr's back.

Halak
Hamr
Pacman
1st
I'm not sure they do that though.
