Very well written article my friend. I strongly believe that Kovie is worth 2 million more than a Sedin for the following reasons.
He has been one of the top scorers in the NHL for the last couple years, the Sedins may be good now, but they could be 60 points players next year. But with Kovie you know he is guarantee to produce.
He can do it all by himself.
One of the best on PP in this league.
Can score for us if we pull the goalie.
His shots can find holes through the opponent's Dmen and goalie to the back of the net.
If we want to go deep in the playoffs, we need Kovie. He is the captain of Atlanta. I have never heard of a captain ruining the chemistry of a new team after being traded. Sedins won't complain because they are nice and they will have less pressure every game. If Luongo is upset, he can suck it up and start to perform like he used to. We will have to trade Kesler or Raymond in the off season if we were to sign Kovie. Kesler is more greedy than Burrows and there is noway he would take a 2 million contract like he did.
