    First thought.. big whoop. A late third. Might as well have kept him or packaged him with someone to actually get something of value.

    Probably a word agreement in his deal was to be traded to a contender at the deadline

    It's probably the best value. Mind you, he was free for anyone to pick up a month ago

    Ah well. I was hoping for a second but his last couple of weeks were underwhelming. Free pick, so whatever. Solid.

    I'm happy for Kovalchuk that he'll get to compete for a Cup, with other Russians too.

    Value is low, a low 3rd, but still value created out of thin air. We'll see what will happen on July 1st.

    Good luck to Kovalchuk, joining his national teammates and friends on a team that has the potential to go all the way! Thanks for the good times!

    I'm low key pissed, I got to assume at this point that he didn't want to sign with us.

    I would have still kept him instead of that 4th round pick for him to mentor our younger players for the nezt 20 some games.

    At least he will get a chance to win the Cup by playing with his best friend Alex Ovechkin.

    Anyways, I'm out...no point in me watching this shity team without Kovalchuk.

    Loved watching him play for the Habs. Was basically my hockey dream back in 2001. Glad we got to see him wear the CH even if it was brief.

    Now, go win a Cup with Ovi and come back here on a 1 year deal. :)

    It was a fun ride while it lasted. But ultimately, I think that was the right move.

    Tells me there was either zero interest or Bergy did that so he could go to Washington for the playoffs and then come back in the summer

    horrible that no other team in the league stepped up with a better offer. Other GMs missed out. It's as simple as that.

    It might open some eyes to how hungry this fan base is for a star, and that is a lot more then a spoken language

    We are retaining 50% of his remaining salary... does that mean we can't retain anyone else?...

    Would’ve kept him at that price. He was sadly the most talented thing we had at this point.

    Was hoping for a 2nd rounder.
