I'm not against resigning these players, just at the right price, especially when the cap is going down next year.
Kovalev and the coach obviously didn't see eye to eye, how many points did Kovy get after Carbo left? The guy is still a contender at his age. Point made.

And besides, just because someone scored 50 points doesn't mean they're a 50 point player. Remember, Koivu missed 17 games this year. And you have to give him a little credit - the guy is the longest serving member of the Habs, the Captain, and always works hard. And you want to cut his pay? Right. He'll walk and we'll get nothing.
