And I think something is bothering Kovalev. He isn't skating - hell he's making Ribeiro and Ryder look like speed demons.
But then, I calm down and tell myself that the last time the Habs traded a highly touted prospect for a star with a foreign-sounding name who wore # 27, we surprised everyone and won the cup.
Mickey Redmond for Frank Mahavolich (sp?)
Huh... I don't wanna sound like an ass, but isn't Czerkawski the last guy who wore the #27 with a "foreign-souding name"?
EDIT: Oh! He said star! My bad...
