    I could see a playoff team paying a 2nd for Kovalchuk. He's got a very low, 700K cap hit and he's been productive since joining the Habs.

    That means he’ll get a 3rd, ask for a 2nd they counter with a 4th you end up with a 3rd.

    Lol okay sure Habs, whatever you say.

    The Habs should just keep him and re-sign him, tbh. If you re-sign him and he either continues what he has done or plays at least reasonably well, you'd be a lot more likely to get that kind of return next year than this year. I can't see how any reasonable contender is going to want to trade a 2nd for Kovalchuk when they could have had him literally for free a month ago.

    I don't see many teams lining up for this trade. He's been pretty bad all year and had been hot the last 10 games after his previous contract was terminated

    It’s gonna end up being a 3rd.

    1) He will probably cool off
    2) Still has a certain reputation that he needs to overcome. There’s a reason it took so long for him to get signed. Guy only works well in the perfect situation for him.
    3) That positive attitude in the dressing room will turn to moping if the team is clearly out of it and doesn’t trade him. Other teams know this. That will hurt his market value.

    conditional 2nd depending on either a conference final or cup final that or they get a 4th

    with either condition a team would have no problem coughing up a 2ne

    he's been terrific with suzuki and armia...maybe he ends up with domi and drouin when jonathan returns..
    regardless, habs shouldn't move him for anything less and they should sign him for another year to give kids like
    caufield more time to develop

    why would a team bite at that asking price, guy was sitting on his couch unemployed and any team could have signed him to league minimum.

    Should be a pick with conditions on it for rounds played in or games played etc.

    If a GM is dumb enough to give a 2nd rounder for him he should be fired imo

    If anything they should being thinking about giving him a 1yr extension depending on his asking price $ wise then flip him next year if he plays like this then he could be worth that type of return.

    Also, be good to have around the kids as another person posted, just my west coast 2 cents anyway

    If the Habs can get a 2nd, take it and run. It was a low risk move bringing him to MTL and if they can flip that for a 2nd this fast, there's no reason not to. I don't know if he can draw a 2nd though, you can't forget about what he did with the Kings and only rely on how he's played on the Habs.

    **** all your 3rd round picks, we'll re-sign him for a year or two.

    He's good for the kids. That's all there is to it. He's got soul.

    An extra 3rd this year will not make any difference to the path this team is on.

    I’m sure they are asking for a second. But will likely gladly take a third.

    GMs will be to prideful to give up a 2nd for a guy they could have had for free a month ago.

    I would laugh if someone actually offered a 2nd for Kovalchuk and Bergevin said no because of Locker Room intangibles

    “Could have had”. Is the key. Just about everyone in the league figured he was done as an NHL player. His stint with Montreal shows otherwise. What he WAS worth and what he IS worth now are not the same thing

    I could see a conditional 4th. Becomes a 3rd if the team makes the conference finals and a 2nd if they reach the SC finals.

    As they should.

    He's more valuable as Suzuki's winger than a third round pick. He's been fantastic.

    He's playing at a high level right now and he's a bargain money wise for any team that acquires him. A low 2nd is not necessarily a bad deal.

    Draft picks are so incredibly overrated here.
