It's a low risk move from a money POV, but I've never seen a player half arse it like Kovalev did in Ottawa. Literally the minute he was traded, the team's energy level increased. Coincidence? Probably, but the kids getting a shot was a HUGE part of Ottawa's transformation from terrible to decent.

Doesn't matter much obviously, it'll be interesting to see how he does.
