Not really.

Just about everybody on the team plays better away from Kovalev. Tanguay did nothing on a line with him, Higgins, A Kostitsyn, and Koivu especially has never gelled with him. Hell even Plekanec looked like a free man when he played with Tanguay and Kostopoulos for a week or so.

Why? because Kovalev is unpredictable and plays like an individual. In his really good games, he'll make beautiful passes but most of the time he'll only pass when its his last option. He simply doesn't make those around him better.
