It was the last month of the season when the Habs were in bombing. That's my definition of "down the stretch". Can anyone tell me when a key player was asked not to play or travel with the team?
Maybe I'm wrong in remembering Gainey being quoted as saying that Kovelev needs to decide if he still wants to play hockey?
EDIT: And don't get me wrong - I consider myself a Kovalev fan. I just can't think of a less likely player to be a captain of a successful team.
