There is ample discussion on how all three of these locations would NOT be a good location for Kovalchuk. And out of those three, LA and St. Loius wouldn't offer any more than the Wild.
Unless some team acts completely irrationally and throws out a mega contract just for the press buzz, there will only be a handful of teams giving contract offers to Kovalchuk, and they will be in the 7.5-8.25 million range. Even Atlanta will have to scale back their offer from what they gave previously.
So, it's not unreasonable to expect Kovalchuk to sign some 10-year, 78 million dollar deal.
