Kovy has been a left winger his entire career and he shoots right so coming from the left side it would make sense. But from what I'm observing he's playing lazy "ME NO PLAY, ME GETTING PAID" hockey.

But, this is team?

LW, RW, LW , RW Oye put him at center then! he's most comfortable carrying the puck in anyway. in fact when he's not carrying it in he looks lost

well at least we dont have Ovechkin...2 more pts than Kovy with 5 more games, playing with a center that he played with for years and with 9.5millions cap hit... 2.9m more than Kovy

1) Kovy's extremely talented, but flawed. We knew that when we brought him in. He's playing hard and doing a lot right. We have to hope he keeps improving. He is better than when we got here, even with the mistakes. He's doing a decent job on the best PK in the league!

2) He hasn't played BADLY since shifting to RW. That line's been the best on the team by far, in fact, and he's a big part of it. That said, his shot is less effective from the left. He'll put up better stats on that side.

3) This team was flawed, then it lost Zajac. The lines aren't going to be anywhere near perfect without him. With him, Kovy can go back to LW and our top 9 looks very good. Til then, guys are battling, sometimes out of position. It's not fair to expect ANYONE to be perfect right now, no matter how much money he's making.

the thing with Kovy is that he's the most talented player in the team... arguably top 10 in the league talent wise...

he can score goals not a lot of people can score... he's stronger and bigger than the average player... and has one of the best wrister and one of the best one timer in the league

whats killing him is his risky decisions... its a mental mistake, he just need to simplify his game and it should be alright... and he seems willing to do wtv it takes to become a better player so there's hope

it can be done

it can be done....with a coach he looks up to like Jaques Lemaire, I dont think he has nearly as much respect for Debo

What makes you think that? He's double shifted, played on every line, and played RW without complaining. He hasn't been perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I see no evidence that his problems come from lack of respect for the coaches.
