Many years ago, I attended an event featuring a lot of Russian players, among them Igor Larionov and Slava Fetisov. I consider both to be among the most intelligent players to ever play the game. One of them (I spoke briefly with both, and the event was so long ago I can't remember which one said this specifically) mentioned to me that he believed Kovalev had the potential to be the greatest Russian player of all-time.
