Lemaire came back, we played 7 out of 8 games like terrible sh!t and then barely lost for the rest of the year. All the while Kovalchuk was sh!tting on people. Bad fit with the organization my ass, the organization is just using him wrong.
There's a reason he's scored the 2nd most goals in the league since 05/06.. Even after playing on a sh!tty offensively devs team for 18 months.
If you're not gonna build your team around making your $100M sniper produce, then why even bother signing him. He needs to play LW, and he needs a talented center on his line.
Kovy was a point pr game player in Atlanta... He has one of the best releases in hockey, period. Granted he's not gonna win any Selke trophys, but not wanting him on your team is mindboggling to me. As has been pointed out numerous times on this board already, he needs someone to set him up, the players on the ice with him at the moment just aren't good enough.
