His dekeing, speed etc may all be superb, but no where near a guy like Ovechkins(#1 creative player in the game).
Nobody is saying the Devils sinking ship is b/c of Kovalchuk. In fact, I said if there is a situation you want someone like Kovalchuk on your team; it's a situation like the devils w/ so many 2 way guys. It's the appropiate support cast for a guy like Kovy. Detroit would be another good fit.
