No, we don't forget(mind you, our best forward overall was kovalev). It's just, IMO, I never saw him as a first line center, never will. Talented two-way player, but he lacks size, grit and if we can get a player who's just as talented but more gritty, why not? I don't want to see him go, but you gotta give something to get something. We're not prepared to send koivu, tanguay and the kostitsyns. Lang and kovalev don't have value for a rebuilding team. Besides our 4th liners there's only really higgins, plek, latendresse to send there. Personally, I like higgins, so that leaves the other two. Like i said, this is my opinion though, others will say trade higgins or even trade markov for all I know.
