No I know. Still, Kovalev might see more 4th line duty the rest of the season if he doesn't get his act together, and considering there's tension in the locker room, Brian Murray might have no choice but to trade Kovalev to whatever team will take him. He's a sunk cost, and if someone earns more minutes than Kovelev, than Kovalev will see more 4th line minutes.

Kovalev isn't exactly a rental player at 2.5 million dollars in March, so if Murray can get something for Kovalev, then he will. Staios and Jokinen are terrible (bottom line), but so is Kovalev. Staios and Jokinen combined aren't as terrible as Kovalev IMO. Plus Jokinen won't get under the coach's skin.
