I'm not singling you out here...

But rather using your quote to address all of these people that are posting about how dissapointed they are or saying that Kovalev is a bust.

Just because he is in the lineup playing right now does NOT mean he's recovered from his shoulder injury.

Watch how often he is missing the net. Compare that to earlier in the season.

Kovalev is CLEARLY playing with shoulder discomfort and it is obviously effecting his shot. He is passing off a lot more then his regular game, and while he still has his quick release, the accuracy of his shot is effected.

People judging Alexei and condeming his for playing through an obvious injury (we all saw him seperate his shoulder) have evidently never suffered a shoulder injury, and secondly, had chose to bash him for playing through it.

Really dimwitted IMO.
