Anyhow, thats just my 2 cents!
Julien's system is such that players are going to be juggled. Ryder can handle it, Koivu can handle it...you don't change an extremely successful system because of two losses and because you want to get your latest trade acquisition going. It's up to Kovalev to adapt to Julien's system, not vice versa.
