I don't think you can miss bringing Kovy back for close to league minimum.

He loves this city and despite a surprising majority of people around here who don't seem to like him a lot of people here do and want him to retire a hab. I feel the same about Koivu. Both those guys did a lot for this team and city. I want Kovalev to come here. If he sucks he can just retire a hab after one season. If he doesn't it's a win scenario for us. He may have lost a step but for the most part when he played with us he played well. People say he only used to show up one night out a five, I'm not saying he did show up every game but he certainly did show up more often then that.

I think it's a win/win scenario 1 year deal limited use of the cap, if he doesn't perform no worries. If he does perform we come up big. One thing Kovalev would be extremely useful for is if we used him as a PP specialist to apply pressure and keep the puck in the other teams end. If he was played with limited minutes on the PP and other times he'd be a fine winger for the 3rd line. Eller is injured anyways give that line something to work with early on.

I'd be all for signing Kovy.
