at this point, i'd be willing to give up anything for him.
imagine building a team around kovalchuk, gaborik, henrik, mdz and staal?

2 potential 50 goal scorers, elite goalie and legit top pair.

They dont right now but they have alot of young players that make a decent amount of money and they would be traded for kovy. It will def be tight but they can get it done if they really wanted too

if kovalchuk is gonna end up being a rentaplayer, chicago is the best bet to get a deal done.

if he's only gonna be dealt to a team thats gonna sign him long term, id count them out

I think for me, i have to include Callahan in that list as well. Because if you ever get to a championship level - he is the prototypical 3rd line guy and hes proven he belongs in New York.

So one player is gonna take up the majority of the team's cap space??
They have the rule in the KHL that one "star" player can be claimed as an exempt from the payroll. They are talking about changing the rule to make it "2 stars exempt".

From a source just now, the Rangers are seriously in on Kovaluchuk...The scoreless run may have something to do with that...

Really? You know this for a fact?

The guy potted 18 goals the previous season, that's like us trading Callahan or Dubinsky at the deadline as "just a throw in to the deal." Nice logic.

A late 1st round pick is still a 1st round pick. Besides, at the time of the deal, there was no guarantee that the pick would even be that low. What if they had ended up with Carlson, Ennis, Eberle, etc? Again, the only reason you can say it was just "a very late 1st round pick" is because we know the end result of that season. If you can accurately predict the SCF participants on March 1st every single season, then kudos to you.

If youre willing to give up anything, some of that has to go. Would be nice, though.

Wouldnt it be nice to make a trade for Penner and then somehow bring in Kovalchuk on a long-term deal? That would mean Rozsival and Redden would be gone and the Rangers would be able to have a solid top-6 with some size in Penner and Dubinsky. One can dream.

Great now we have no chance!

If the Rangers don't get Kovalchuk, I really hope the Islanders do. They would have to give up their young talent, and I really believe that there is zero chance he signs on LI.

I would have to think any team trading for him would require a new contract in order for the deal to complete.

Kevin Allen of USA Today is close to Atlanta GM Don Waddell

Allen gave his thoughts on the Islanders rumor

Quote:
First, Atlanta GM Don Waddell wants to make the playoffs and he won't be keen on sending Kovalchuk to one of his playoff rivals.

Second, the Islanders might not be able to offer the kind of deal the Thrashers need. The Thrashers likely will want to acquire a first-round pick, a prospect and a player who can help them now as they try to make the playoffs. That's essentially the deal Waddell made when he traded rental Marian Hossa two years ago.
Atlanta is battling the Rangers for a playoff spot

Quote:
And there are teams in the West that could help Atlanta in that regard. For example, if the Los Angeles Kings want Kovalchuk, they could offer Alexander Frolov because it appears they aren't going to re-sign him. If the Chicago Blackhawks are in the mix, it would be helpful to their cap situation if they moved a couple of regulars, especially given that they will have to shed some salaries in the offseason to make room for the contracts signed by Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith.

While I applaud the aggressiveness of the Islanders' interest in Kovalchuk, I don't believe they will be first in line. If the Thrashers trade Kovalchuk, I believe they will look first at Western Conference teams.

Snow did not directly refer to Kovalchuk, who reportedly is seeking a nine-figure contract. "We're not going to deviate from our plan," Snow said. "Or break up the core of our team."

The Bruins are very interested, but as this source pointed out, the current asking price is too high. Kovalchuk has made it known to the Thrashers and his agent Jay Grossman that if he was dealt, he would not sign long term and instead would test his value on the open market this summer.

That makes sense as a rental for this season. That would be the ideal team to get him too as they have contracts they need to move anyways.

And ideal for the Rangers fan who want to sign him, because I can't foresee any possible permutation that allows Chicago to re-sign him.

Yeah, unless Chicago moves Hossa + they would never have room. I would be okay with that, if the Rangers dont win the cup I am rooting for Chicago.

Atlanta has offered Kovalchuk $9.5 million while he wants $11 million

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4826067

Quote:
Weve had very candid face-to-face meetings over the last six months. The lines of communication are open and Jay has been extremely honorable, Levenson told SportingNews.com. I have the highest regard for [Kovalchuk], not just on the ice but as a person. Hes smart, hes direct and thats why weve had such a candid dialogue.

Thats great, but the question remains: Will the Thrashers and Kovalchuk get a deal done before the March 3 trade deadline?

No idea. I have no idea, Levenson said. We have put offers on the table that make sense for our team going forward and that we think are fair with the reality that Kovy is one of the great, great players in the game.
http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/The...kovalchuk_deal

$9.5 million is more than fair. The Rangers can't pay Kovalchuk $9.5 million next season. Forget about $11 million.

Here's the latest on the Ilya Kovalchuk front: The Atlanta Thrashers captain is still unsigned; still poised to become an unrestricted free agent; still unsure if $9-million per season on a lifetime contract is enough to stay in the NHL; and still the object of the Continental Hockey League's burning desire. In short, nothing's changed
