At the time of the trade Kovalchuk had 58 points in 49 games, finishing the season with 85/76 respectively. Prior to that he has posted 91, 87 and 98 points topping fifty goals twice. Just last year he put up 83 in 77 and has vastly improved his defensive game since going to New Jersey.

Perry is good but outside of one 98 point season. His numbers do not compare to Kovalchuk's, especially not when Kovy was traded. One could argue Atlanta having no chance of resigning him attributed to a lower return though.
