Kovalev was thought to be a good match to boost habs creative/offensive abilities, and we will just have to stay patient as CJ has shown us this year.
Also Bondra wasn't available to the habs. Washington sent him to Ottawa to give him a chance to win the cup. The deal Ottawa gave Washington wasn't better than what the Habs could have offered. It just wasn't going to happen. Leetch does not/did not fit our needs at that time. Souray was/is the go to guy on D.
