I always loved Kovalchuk, but being UFA the asking price is really high. Don't forget that we only got 4 draft picks this year and it is supposed to be a deep one.

Does Kovalchuk come with a 10 year contract extension with that deal?That is a lot for just a rental that has only played in 4 PG in his career

Eklund always makes sure to include Mtl in any rumor. Huge fan base provides hits.

Yay ads money!

Let's assume that Atlanta is interested by this trade proposal. Would you be willing to give up 2 first round picks and the K bros for a rental we wont be able to sign next year due to salary cap. Plus, chances are he would not even sign here next year.

We are NOT contenders this year. We're not. So why would we trade assets for a half season rental ? So we can finish 8th, 7th or 6th and get wiped out in the first round AGAIN !?

MAKES NO SENS !!

If Atlanta only had to give up what they gave up, for hossa, I just don't see Kovalchuks return being as good as listed in the OPs post. 3 NHLers, 1 prospect, 1 1st?

Seems like overpayment, now I know kovalchuk >>>>>> hossa, but still.

MONTREAL (AMONG OTHER TEAMS) IS INTERESTED!

Get it done and sign him long term Bob ;-)

To Atlanta:

Andrei Kostitsyn
Sergei Kostitsyn
Roman Hamrlik
David Fischer
1st round draft pick in 2010

To Montreal:

Ilya Kovalchuk
Mark Popovic

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kovalchuk
Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta


Note: You guys think Kovalev was treated like a god here? - LOL
I would do this trade in a heart beat.

AK and SK are playing hard now but I don't think they are great in the room. Hammer's contract will hurt us in the next few years. Way too steep imo.

If Kovalchuk becomes available, every team in the NHL will place a phone call. Eklund can say whatever team he wants, it doesn't require much knowledge to say so..

I wouldn't trade the farm for him if he is unsigned, but we would be nuts not to ask!

The only way we get Kovalchuk is if we trade Gomez, Hamrlik, a couple nice prospects and a pick. I know that sounds like even more overpayment then the OPs post but it isn't, it's actually severe underpayment as it would tie them up in cap hell just in order to get two good players lmao. Obviously this deal will never go down tho, as Atlanta's GM probably doesn't want to make the worst trade in NHL history.

Personally though if it weren't for 2010-2011 I'd be happy to keep both the players in question (Hammer/Gomez)

Gomez has no trade value. You couldn't get a 3rd round pick for Gomez. His salary vs point production is just too low.

I can't believe that the majority of you seem to think that even if we manage to land him here as a rental, he will sign with us after that.

Hossa went to the Stanley Cup final and didn't even sign with the Pens..
Imagine Kovalchuk with Montreal....


Most of Habs fans are **** bat insane

That's what I said earlier,if he doesn't come with a contract extension,forget about it.How many teams have made these block buster types of deal and won the cup?Not worth it for a rental,if he would sign 5-6 years then I would really think about it

Extension is the key, but with the cap and everything, it would be quite a puzzle to have him here.
