Maybe it's an "awe" factor, maybe it's shyness, I don't know, but I think all parties might benefit from a little separatoin.
I think if the veterans were put together, it might make for an interesting scenario. I think guys like Koivu and Tanguay wouldn't mind dishing to Kovalev; yet I'm also cautious that they all might try to be the go-to guys on a line and the situation wouldn't end nicely.
Thankfully, I don't have to make these decisions.
Agreed fully, despite me here defending Kovalev, I also think the line should be broken up. Clearly, it hasn't worked this year, so time for something new, no matter whose fault it is.
