Kovalev should be captain of this team. Last year, when he wore the C during Koivu injury is exactly when he started to really be on fire!
He might not get a hat trick but will definately play solid.
He has been playing really well this season, he has tons of chances, but is just not putting it in. It has nothing to do with being slower or not. He has the same speed he did last year, he just had a little more luck last year. We only played 25 or so games, on an 82 game schedule, he is bound to start scoring again!
He's lost a gear. Get over it. He's clearly not as fast as last year and is slower to react to the oppnent's pressure. He doesn't use his teammates. It worked before, but when you're getting older, you've got to change the way you play.
He's working, but he's just not adjusting enough right now. And sorry, but with the talent he has, the way he works, 5 goals in 27 games is not a lot. He's supposed to be up there with Lang and Tanguay for goals scored... Not with Lapierre and Begin...
His attitude is fine, the talent is there, but he's got to use Lang Tanguay and the D-Men more... Because forget it, he's never going to have a season like last year again. To me, this year, sorry, but he's not a dangerous player for the opponents.
