I could have sworn last week Kovalev was honourary King Of Montreal. Alas, it's a short walk to the outhouse.

I'm sure Gainey and Carbo will have their little tete-a-tete again, Carbo will get back on the right page, and they'll move forward with the Good Times approach to Kovalev again. It's the only way we get something out of him. Josef Balej Jr. and a 2nd round pick would do nothing for us. Even Kovalev playing at 80% is better than a lot else we have to choose from. The team made their bed with Kovalev, and they will continue to have to sleep in it.

Well, maybe until July 1st. The way he finishes this season might introduce some unlooked-for changes in the way the club would have expected to approach his contract status for next year.
