You too easily discount what Kovy does on the ice. He gets the puck in the neutral zone, takes it into the zone, which he can do because he is one of the few players who scare opposing D causing them to back up, cuts to the middle amidst a few defenders, again, really the only guy who can do that, shoots, partially blocked,tipped,fanned, whatever, Ribs scores by heading to the net,which is the key to playing with Kovalev. No one else on the team can take the puck and go where he wants to go. Sure, it often doesn't work, but at least he can carry the mail. I know you don't like the guy but don't deny the obvious.
