Stewart - Begin - Dandenault

PP:
Higgins - Koivu - Kovalev
Pacioretty - Plekanec - A.Kostitsyn (I would see that line as the PP1, but Carbonneau will probably be forced to put Kovalev on the no.1 PP unit). Make sure Kostitsyn plays on the RW because this is where he belongs.

What if Kovalev is not a star? I dont get it when people are saying Kovalev SHOULD make his teammates better. He never did that in his career even when he was younger. Thats he is 36, he has suddenly become a star and should make his teammates better. He didnt make Mark Messier better. Mark Messier made him better.

Kovalev was not the one that made Plekanec better last season but the whole line help each other. I am a fan of Kovalev and Kovy was not the reason that line worked out great last season.

Kovalev always needs a good centerman to perform, if not, he will be selfish and keep the puck from himself.
