I don't like TK on a supposed scoring line, I don't like Koivu with Kovalev but I don't think it's relevant right now. Players, no matter who they play with, have to execute fundamental hockey plays. No Harlem Globetrotter fancy thru 3 guys passes, no pouting for 2 shifts because it didn't work. It isn't about matching talent right now, the coaches, imo, should give them a brief message and then make it clear that they're on their own to solve their problems.

Not playing on your desired line right now is the least of their problems. Not competing for consecutive shifts when faced with adversity is what they have to adress, and the players have to do that themselves, if they are indeed what they think they are.
