For instance, it's widely speculated and somewhat widely accepted that Melnyk engineered the Kovalev deal.
I really don't think you understand the concept of pro scouting at all.
And this is the second time I've read you blaming Melnyk for the Kovalev signing without providing evidence. Heck, Murray previously signed another aging Russian coming off a good year that did not fit his team in Fedorov, so why is it so hard to believe that Kovalev was all Murray's doing?
