you're probably right about the Kovalchuk offer... but again, if they are in a situation where they need to move him for financial reasons (cap is one thing, 11M$ is another), i really do think there won't be a huge market for him given the costs in real dollars (his cap hit is great, but 11M$/year for next 6 years will make even the wealthiest teams cringe i would think).
if it comes down to just 3-4 teams that are in on the bidding, how hard will they go for him, and what will they be offering, who knows... as a starting point, the offer I suggested isn't exactly peanuts.
as for Radulov, this is what I thought, but I read an article somewhere suggesting that whatever team has his rights could agree to rip up his deal and sign a new one... apparently Semin/Caps reached a similar agreement when he came back to the NHL.
if Habs trade for him, and that is a possibility, i don't see them playing hardball like Nashville in terms of forcing him to play for his ELC contract salary.
if he does HAVE to play for that salary period, great!
