what tricks you do with the puck in practice in front of your teammates is irrelevant, it's how the skills translates to games that matter, practice is called practice for a reason, allen iverson knows that

agreed. but that said, i think kovalev could have probably been mike modano if he'd wanted to. other than the skating, he had all the physical gifts modano had and probably was the more natural goal scorer and playmaker. and i'm pretty sure he was drafted as a center too.
