All Hail Kommander and Captain Kovalev
I admire the way he's turned things around this year. In terms of his overall game, the way he's used other players on the ice, got involved in his own zone, I don't know if he's ever played better. When a guy is challenged like this, personally and professionally, and that's what it was, and he responds this way, he's earned some respect.

If this is the org's way of ackowledging it, I'm all for it.

The team has about 10-12 guys that have the type of personality you look for in a captain. Having Kovalev provide an example this year has been the biggest story of this season in Mtl. It can be difficult to develop leaders when your best player isn't on the same page.
