I just need to take a stab at what'd it would take for the Isles to land Ovi. Just for argument's sake:

NYI gets:
+$2mil/year paid by Washington on Ovi's contract (because Wang)

Wash gets:
NYI 1st round pick in '13
NYI 2nd round pick in '14
Ryan Strome
Calvin deHaan
Kyle Okposo

I'm probably off by a bit, and Ovechkin is slumping, but the guy would get a RIDICULOUS package for the Caps if they were to move him & eat a bit of salary. Name value + fan marketability + GM hoping he'd "revert to the old Ovi with a change of scenery" (the usual excuse) = a king's ransom.

I'm not saying that's what Ovechkin is WORTH, I'm saying it's what someone would probably PAY in a bidding-war scenario.
