This is one of those trades that will take a couple of years to fully shake out, but I think Atlanta comes out about as well as they could have hoped to.
I'd say it's similar value wise to what we gave up for Forseberg. Main difference is Forsberg was almost certainly a rental. I'm sure NJ will do everything possible to resign Kovalchuk (still might not be good enough).
