Kovalev has to EARN a spot on the 1st two lines. This is the Montreal Canadiens, not the Flin Flon Raiders. You EARN a spot. It was that way with Bowman as a coach, it was that way when Burns was here, and it's that way with Gainey/Julien. If you think Gainey doesn't approve of the moves Julien makes, you're a lost cause. They're on the same page.
If i remember well, before perreault refound his touch on the Koivu line, he didnt do squat to deserve to be on that line. Its the playoffs, no time for punishments anymore, everybody has a clean slate.
