We have Gaborik, and then we take a nose-dive into the "lack of talent" pool. You add Kovalchuk, and then we have one extra step before we see that drastic dip in talent.

Although it probably won’t happen, adding Kovalchuk isn’t just adding “another scorer”.
The guy is as elite, as Gaborik and on the second line would give us as good a “one two punch”
As Malkin and Crosby. It wouldn’t erase other issues, but it would improve this team considerably
On the offensive side.

What we have now is a plethora of 3rd line, sub par 2nd line talent who we are depending upon for primarily
Scoring. If you haven’t noticed, they’re failing miserably at it. Expectations were set too high for a lot of these
Guys for the sole reason is we don’t have enough true top six talent.
