Firing the coach is not going to make the Devils average roster suddenly better people. It worked once, but the talent was there.
I mean, just think out loud for a minute. If you're the coach of a team about to play against the Devils, who do you key on? Kovy - sure. Any dangerous defensemen? Not really. Elias - maybe. Clarkson, Zajac, Poni? Nope.
The minimal talent on this roster is becoming painfully obvious. When you have to hope for your 4th line to consistently produce to win games you're in trouble. Big trouble.
Kovy is keyed on himself playing on RW. He's not doing sh!t at that position. If they're not going to fix that, who cares about anyone else. They're paying a guy $11M prorated to play on his offwing when his game is left to right. It's so fvcking stupid/stubborn it's unbelieveable. There is no worthy LW on this team for him to be doing this.
I absolutely agree. It made sense to move Kovy over when Zach was on the left, but with him gone there's just no reason to keep Kovy on the right.
I almost feel bad for Kovy, having learned to play the RW only to see it be a total waste. But then I remember he's getting that $11m for the next few years so I can't feel too bad.
