If you knew before the Kovalchuk deal..

If you knew even before Kovalchuk became a New Jersey Devil that perhaps it would take a season of last place hockey for Kovalchuk to become a 40 goal scorer and a positive contribution to the team would you still want him? It goes without saying he's done nothing but learn how to play hockey once he left the Thrashers. Defense wasn't really part of his game back then, but if.. and the very key word is if.. Kovalchuk turns it around next year and becomes a 40-50 goal scorer with a positive plus minus does that make the deal worth it?

A lot of intangibles like Parise's contract, Maclean's early season presence and the like but disregarding that we all know the Kovalchuk deal and cap woes it brought about are at least partly responsibile.
