He's going to be slotted on the second line with huberdeau and mueller. He sticks with the team until a younger player shows he can handle playing on the second line. So far nobody has come close
That, more than anything, was why he didn't work out in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's style is breakout as fast as possible when you have the puck and get back as fast as possible when you don't. He was behind the play no matter which direction the puck was going.

Contrary to popular belief, Kovalev's not a "bad attitude" guy. It's not like he's a primadonna selfish jerk. I hate to use the word enigmatic, so I'll just say he's a space alien.
