Kovy could have been traded to the Islanders possibly if Kovy was willing to go through with it and that 10 year 100 million offer was legit.
Even if it was, a 15 year 100 million dollar deal is way worse than 10 years, 100 million dollars. The Islanders had the lowest actual payroll in the league - they used lots of players who had effectively unreachable bonuses to make it to the salary floor. The Kovalchuk deal, for a good portion of it, pays out several million dollars above the cap hit. That would be disastrous for the Isles.
Even now I don't know who would take on this deal if in theory it had to be traded.
