The Canucks get the right winger and secondary scoring threat they need, Rangers shell salary and add (potentially) a couple of good prospects. I don't know for sure whether Slats would do this, but in my defense, Bob McKenzie speculated in his column that Kovalev could potentially be available at the deadline. But the Rangers might be able to get better offers.
Waaaaay too much going to New York IMO. Bondra, a player of similar trade value, went for a good prospect and a 2nd round pick. Koltsov, a 1st and a 3rd is too much for Kovalev and a conditional pick, unless it's a 1st rounder. Umberger and a 2nd is the most I'd offer for Kovalev, considering he'd be a two month rental.

The other deals look pretty solid IMO.
