If we are lucky enough to trade A.K. for some decent player than that opens even more space to replace him with someone useful.
Anyway, getting Kovalchuk should be the number one priority for Gauthier at any price; that's a no brainer; for arguably the best player in the league. A tremendous offensive threat that Montreal desperatly needs considering it is one of the worst 5 on 5 teams in the league as far as scoring goals is concerned. Kovalchuk with Gomez and Gionta on the first line or even paired with Cammalleri, Ellers, Pouliot, A.K., or another player we can snag would be insanely good.
I don't think you can buyout a player right before the deadline. There's a period for buyouts and it's right now. (June 15 to June 30).
