Kovys recent seasons and overall lack of effort would seemingly make this a low risk low reward if any but heres a few things im banking on....
1) Hes in his last contract year and will need to show some effort to get paid enough to warrant staying in the nhl vs khl.
2) Hes close with mario and realizes he is the guy that is talking his character up let alone mario paying his salary. Dont think hes going to float around with that in mind.
3) Has a chance to be that impact player if only to get the pp going. With our pk, winning the special teams battle in close games with how we play 5 on 5 is key with no sid and malkin.
4) Nostalgia. He can prove he can be the impact player for this franchise he once was. This is the ideal situation for him.
