And I am sorry but I see no difference at even strength without Kovy. I love the guy but he has been a black hole at even strength this year. Of course the special teams miss him but the offense looks the same and players are taking his minutes and are doing just fine. Hopefully when he returns everyone will be healthy and we can roll 4 very good lines. A team with a fully rested Zubrus and Kovalchuk will be really good. I am also done with Gionta, I love his work ethic but I hope Josefson can come back after his injury. If Josefson doesnt impress on that line then put Gionta back. Clarkson is also not doing good lately, ideally we want him on the third line when we have more depth, I would love to see what Dags can do with Elias and Zajac.
Zubrus Loktionov Kovalchuk
Elias Zajac D'agostini
Ponikarovsky Henrique Clarkson
Carter Josefson Bernier
EDIT: I like what I saw from D'agostini tonight, he is a good player when he has the puck with speed.
It is not the end of the world. Lets all just calm down.
