Hopefully, but what's the point of giving a try out to someone that has a hard time giving his all? Besides, rookies look to vets like Kovalev in camps, so there's always the chance that his lack of work ethic rubs off on our kids.

Besides, why reward Kovalev with a try-out, instead of a young prospect that has worked his butt off?

That's a bad philosophy for the team. You want everyone in camp giving their all, and we all know Kovalev wouldn't.

Like I said, Kovalev had a hard time scoring in the KHL last year, why bring him in on a try out if he can't even put up points anymore?

The whole point of Kovalev is that he's lazy, but talented, so he'll put up points. Unfortunately his age has caught up to him, and he's not even putting up points any more.

I am a huge Kovalev fan, he was electrifying during his tenure in Montreal, but that was then, this is now. He's regressed every year, and there's no point in sending him an invite on a try out.

He had one goal in 22 games in the KHL last year.

Time to move on.
