I would take both St. Louis and Gagne over Kovalchuck if we're talking about just next season with that point setup. Gagne managed to pot 41 goals last season with Forsberg only centering him a fraction of the time. Now he has Briere to dish him the puck. St. Louis again has Lecavelier. Kovalchuck just doesn't have a centerman of that calibur to work with this year. In 05-06' he had Savard. The drop off in production in 06-07' without him was pretty noticable.

1-year league = St. Louis, and this shouldn't be close for next year. He blew the other two out of the water last year, and he should do it again. St. Louis not only gets a lot of goals, but he also bags a lot of assists, has a good +/-, is good in shootouts, and is very active shorthanded. Those partial points will add up.
