Face it, he's overrated and the excuse making for him is tiresome.
No one said Kovalchuk was better then Nash or vice versa, Nash has two 40 goal years and aside from his rookie year finished under 30 only once (27), 6 years ago. Besides its not like Kovalchuk never had anyone to play with, his first 50 goal year Marc Savard had 97 points! Name me someone Nash has played with anywhere close to comparable. Derrick Brassard was his primary Center this year
