I got nothing. Maybe he could climb it. Or run into it. Or spray paint it. But yes, as a PP unit, I'd love to see what they could create. Even moreso with Saku at centre with his play down low, and him and Kovy working the little redirection plays they used to make.
Koivu play at about the same place Kovalev like to be. It's also about keeping Koivu's minutes down a bit cause he looks much better playing 17-18 mins a game apposed to 19-21mins. On some nights sure but I think that Pleaky can do an equal job.
