3) The Rangers are not looking to trade Kovalev. He starting to playithe way he should of late and also has 14 assists.
And, again, the Rangers could get more for Kovalev (and Carter) than the Caps would for Jagr for the mere fact that any financial commitment to them ends at the end of the season.
More? sure...what is more? So far none of the top money players known or rumored to be on the market have been moved. Carter has 5 pts in 22 games...right? Isn't that 3rd line type production? Yes, ive noticed Kovalev's assists. 17pts in 22 games is still below par for him and the truth is that he gets his assists in part because he gets touches on the power play. he has gotten his share of 2nd assists for being in the neighborhood. if at halfway kovalev has 7 goals and you are alright with that, I wonder if you would be so accepting of Lindros or Dvorak for that.
