how is anyone questioning Kovy at this point?
Even if he did NOTHING the entire season but showed up in the playoffs...has not 4 seasons of consistently being the most dominant player (at least in the first round), along with koivu (not this year though) w/o having any surrounding team, make you realize how clutch this guys is for the time of year when it matters? BTW...he ended the season as our leading scorer (even if Markov had played, he would be close). It's one thing to support him just cuz he can dangle, but just look at how reliable he is in the POs. This year he had NOBODY to help him. Put him around quality guys (cough...tanguay and koivu) and I don't see how there's a problem.

as for bad as he's been, he's the kind of guy you want on your team. I can't say whether he'll go for the big bucks somewhere else, but I think he will return to top form next season and will be worth 4.5 million based on other D's salaries (although I sincerely hope we are aiming to get him for less given his bad play this season).
