Kovalev has never been a very fast skater, but he can turn on a dime. His agility on his skates and his hands is what makes him an effective player; obviously his intelligence on the ice plays a large role as well.
i agree with you .I just look the way Lang manages his game , even if he 's a slow but intelligent player ; Kovalev has by far better hands , so i would be confortable to sign him for a 3 years contract . Even if they are slower once older , they just have to put their big frame in front of the net and will manage to get points . Smaller players once they lost a little bit of their speed , have more problems to be effective . In 2-3 years , their impact can completly fall , as we have seen for players like Audette or Samsonov .
