The Kovalev with good linemates.

When all thing worked great with Plekanec and A. Kostitsyn in 07-08, Kovalev was an absolute beast.

In 08-09, Plekanec played almost all season like a little girl while A. Kostitsyn was very inconsistent. And when Kovalev was put on the same line with Koivu and Tanguay in the end of the season, he got 16pts in 7 games.

Kovalev is not good enough to make his teammates better but with good linemates, he is still one hell of a player.

And Kovalev has never disppointed in the playoff for the Habs.
