If you actually watched Kovy and Dats, Malkin and Ove play, out of all those players, Kovy is always trying his best, not being overly fancy with the puck, but focuses more on puck control to help his team rather than trying to show off and looking dumb when he gives the puck away.
It's funny how the Red wing and penguin fanboys show up to defend their husband. Just more ammo to how underrated and how good Kovy really is and how OVERRATED those other players are.
Look at this video of Kovy scoring the winning goal
He was under major pressure in OT, this was lemaires milestone game. Look at that speed, that stick handling, that control, that release. No other player in the NHL could do that as good as Kovy. And look at that celebration, all class. Didn't burn his stick, jump into the boards or anything.
So what Toews tries his best and gives the puck up less than Stamkos, your logic apply there too?
Malkin is easily better then Kovalchuk, as long as you're not a blind. Ever watch the 09' playoffs? ever seen Kovalchuk play that good? nope.
Sure he has great stick handling at high speeds, to bad he also gives up the puck TONS of times too, I've seen Malkin makes plenty of highlight reels better then that Kovy play.
You act like Kovalchuk is perfect, and overrate him beyond relief. Malkin outscored him by almost 30 points with worst line mates in less games.
