Not sure how popular of an opinion this will be, but the thing I'm happiest with about Kovalchuk is his points split. 30 goals 41 assists. This is only the 3rd year in his career where he has had more assists than goals (the year we acquired him was the most recent, although he had more goals than assists in Atlanta for those 49 games). Pretty clear indication he is out there making the players around him better, and not just shooting all day. I would be thrilled with him scoring 40-50 goals any year. But I love that he's distributing so much. That mentality is going to help make any line he is on that much more effective.
