    You fail to recognize that if the Canucks were to go after Kovalchuk, the Thrashers would want at least two of any combination of Kesler, Raymond, Edler, or Burrows.

    We could go after Kovie, but then there would be no one for him to play with.

    If Atlanta has no way of getting him signed, it should not cost 2 of the above combo.

    A C. Schneider, Bieksa, Grabner + Pick should do the job.

    If the Canucks give up anything it’s not going to be Raymond, Kesler, Edler or Burrows. It’s likely going to be a prospect, defenceman and pick. As Sam said, likely Schneider, Bieksa and a pick.

    I agree that Kovalchuck looks best as a rental. If that were to transpire, there really wouldn’t be any reason to take Burrows off the Sedin line. Presuming Kesler would not be part of the deal going to Atlanta (not a great assumption, but still) he could feed Kovalchuk as well as help make up for some of the defensive deficiencies in the Russian’s game. That Kesler-Kovalchuk combo would be a fantastic starting point onto which a big body (Bernier), a speedy winger (Raymond), or finesse (Demitra, Samuelsson) could be placed depending on which side of the bed AV wakes up on.

    What I would really like to see as a rental over Kovalchuk is an elite #1 defenseman (did I hear someone say Niedermayer?). The Nucks defense has a couple good dynamic players, but is missing a big-time, do-it-all d-man. I really think that is the piece that is missing most on this years’ squad, and acquiring it would elevate Vancouver to being one of the elite teams in the league.
