I'm thinking a possible shakeup move could be to trade Kovy (maybe for a defenceman). I know Kovy's our most talented forward and a true gamebreaker but his effort isn't always consistent, he can be frustrating to watch and coach, he doesn't always use his head, he takes some selfish penalties, and I question whether he makes his linemates better. I also think we have enough leadership to fill his void. If he is traded, it should be to a Western Conference team (Kovy to Minny for Zidlicky?) so that we don't run into an inspired Kovy in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
I love watching Kovy and he certainly has top drawer talent. However, I honestly don't think the team will be any worse without him, and I think his subtraction might make us more of a TEAM.
Any other ideas for a 'shakeup'?
The only way to shake the team up is to trade someone. Show the team that anybody could be traded at any moment and that if they wanna play in Montreal, they have to start playing better or they will be gone. Something has to give. Something isn't right.
