Also I feel he holds us back too much because we are always looking to give him the puck, but Kovalev is not a game breaker like Ovi, Crosby, Malkin or Alfie, so it ends up leading to nothing.

I feel as though the habs won't progress so long as they have Kovalev on the team and I don't even hate the guy, I actually like him, but he holds us back.

but this is all opinion, I have no proof.
He has always maintained that he wants to be the "go to" guy. That was why he didn't play so well in NY during his second stint and was probably why he didn't do so well early in the year when we were rolling four lines consistently. If the Habs are to move forward as a team, then Kovy needs to accept a new role or move on. At a reduced rate, I'd resign him in a minute though. Not going to happen though.
