I love begin but if i remeber good, he s better when he doesn t play more than +/-15 min a game, same as Bonk.
Well more than 15 mins, would mean an offensive role. Obviously that's not his job and it never will be. I don't think a center is the answer for Kovalev, I think maybe he just has to be happy with his linemates to do his best. He said he was content with Ribeiro on a few occasions, but the linemates were always the problem if we keep these two together. I thought the line worked best when Ribs was making the plays than Kovalev, cuz obviously Ribs has better vision and Kovalev has better finish. I guess we'll have to wait till next year and see, but I think if that line is going to work, either Lats will have to play LW or Kost, Perez will have to come up big on the wing. Truthfully though, I prefered the Ribs + Ryder duo.
