PK's been among the best in the league, at least from a pure kill standpoint.
Whether or not Kovy would've been a 30-40 goal scorer now and going forward is definitely questionable. He scored 11 goals in 37 GP last season. He's not lighting it up in the KHL this season. His shooting %s in the NHL last season and the KHL this season are not great. I agree, a lot of things led to his leaving, and we'll never know what they all were, but he comes off like he's a pretty sensitive guy, and one who knew it was going to get ugly around here when he could no longer live up to that deal. One could argue that he could never truly live up to it, but less-than-30 goals Kovy would've been hard for a lot of Devils fans to take, especially with his shortcomings elsewhere.
I agree. and its partly why I dont hate the guy. the move was mutually beneficial . I do think he's damaged goods at this point
