The guy is an amazing player, no questions about it. If you cant see it, I'm sorry, but I cannot respect your ability to understand the game. His contract is a separate discussion all together...
Kovy is far and away one of the best pure offense guys to play the game. It doesn't mean he's a complete player that you can build championships around - but he has been trying since coming to NJ to be a better all around player, but it's not his 'way'. That's why we need Parise or someone of his ilk to lead us.
But you also need that Kovy swag to put up that goal when you need one. He's starting to get hot again in that regard.
