2) They will be on different lines and will get double-teamed constantly. When there is no one else on the line to score...what good is that?

If we had Gabby, a couple 65 point guys, two 40 point guys and a really sold backend...sure...sign him...knock your socks might put us over the top.

But the fact is...we have Gabby...a couple 40 point guys and a defense that is only half there.

come on now....gaborik scored how many being the only scoring threat on the TEAM let alone his line. He drew the opponents top shut down line and dman every game and till put up those numbers

why, then, will be shut down more when theres a 2nd, even more prolific, scoring threat on another line?

then they come together on the PP...thats a dramitic improvement in and of itself

obviouslly Kovalchuk doens't equal instant cup, but to assume he wont have a significant impact on the scoring depth of this offense is flat out stupid
