A motivated Kovalev is sublime on the ice. With his strenght and skill Kovalev is a terrific threat. He can be a game changer.

But in today's hockey you need to bring your whole attributes at all times. Not doing so tends to label you as been a streaky and emotionless performer. This is Kovalev's achilles heel.

Because of that Kovalev has a hard time solidifying himself in a any NHL roster.

Unfortunatly his "style" or "mentality" of play hinders to team he plays with and this con overweights the pros of having him on the ice.

On paper, a line of AK - Eller - Kovy makes me drool. They could - not would - dominate.
