I would take him back too for two reasons:

1) Loves playing in MTL

2) IMO, he was/is a great winger! I don't get where all the negativity comes from regarding his play. His numbers were very very respectable despite being shuffled all the time. I feel as though people lump him in with Kovalev who did have his ups and downs. AK was always dangerous when on the ice. The only area of concern was backchecking and in the past two seasons, he completely erased my concerns about that. Also, big hitter! He was one of my favourite forwards in terms of raw ability and again, he lived up to it. That said, I am expecting Bourque to bounce back.

BTW...Markov IS coming back, right? I know Kovalchuk might stay longer in the KHL, but Bobby Mac mentioned Markov in the same breath, although alluding to perhaps one extra game, but ya never know. Markov seems pretty loyal to the Habs, so I'm guessing/hoping he really did just mean a game or two.
