I'm one of the few who still thinks getting Kovalev was a great idea. I also think he's playing hurt. Therefor way below expectations.
I also hope we resign him this summer. The prospect of having Kovalev in the line-up for a whole year far outweighs the excitement of receiving our 2nd rounder back if he walks. As for using the money we'd save to sign another free agent, I ask why? First of all you run the risk of the same thing happening (playing not up "our" expectation). Secondly if Kovalev does find his stride again is there anyone available who is better? And third, the unfortunate luxury of Kovalev's less that stellar play is the ability to resign him below market value. And if, as I mentioned, he heals and finds his game we then have a bargain.
Let's not chase him out of town before we see what he can bring to the table. I think we'll regret it if we do.
Keep the faith folks. Remember we weren't even supposed to make the playoffs this year. We're way ahead of schedule.
