Kovalchuk is only playing with 4 other guys at the time... Theres no excuses for the other 9 forwards not scoring. We had 3 30 goals scorers last season, one per top 3 line.
I mean... At first we were using the excuse that brodeur was injured... Came back. Now we were blaming zubrus injury... Now its kovy...
If you lose one guy and that the whole team cant score... Means you dont have a good depth
He consisently gets above 22 minutes of ice time a game, and will be paired with everyone from Zajac to Jeff Carter. He plays the powerplay and penalty kill and quite well at that, and would be better if coaching tried to set him up for a snap shot instead of the slapper from the point.
Whenever he's on the ice, he needs to be accounted for. You notice that he's out there, and not in the Larsson cough up the puck kind of way.
So far as I'm concerned, he's a top ten forward in the league. You take him out of the lineup, as well as a top fifteen forward in Parise, your team is going to suffer, and suffer badly at that. Losing 10 games in a row starting at the exact moment that he's out of the lineup ought to make this plain to everyone, even those that for some bizarre reason believe that goals are random and players that actually score goals are overrated.
