As for the effort level issue Kovy is getting older so I think his lack of mobility is sometimes seen as lack of effort. He isn't as mobile as he once was. Look at Messier near the end of his career. He just didn't skate as well as he once did. That doesn't mean he couldn't be effective at certain roles.
All this is moot as I don't think the Rangers should take either of them as they are both too old.
Kovalev's effort level has always been in question. And the reason people have been harping on your quote is because you say they have "comparable" stats, which is false.
