You do the math and find out if he's worth it or not.
I wouldn't say he is soft. Well maybe he is, but actually he can throw his body around more than most of our forwards. As for your point about him being a selfish player, it's hard for me to disagree with that, but that's what happens with most super-skilled players. Those kind of players tend to keep the puck for themselves a tad longer, and sometimes *much* longer. You need some of those on your team. Zednik does that too, but the difference is he needs 5 good scoring chances to put the puck in the net, whereas Kovalev is more of a sniper (mostly because of that accurate and hard wrist shot he possesses).
