He is 6th in team scoring right now, with Versteeg going to overtake him soon.
I'd be happy if Kovalev finishes with 20pts which is his pace right now, it would be more than we could ask for from him in 48 games. He's 40 and in his twilight year, his role is mainly a PP specialist and a 3rd or 4th line winger. He still has hands, attracts players attention on the PP and can still chip in on the scoresheet every once in a while. I understand he makes bad plays and has giveaways but Santorelli is more of a wasted contract than Kovalevs' in my opinion.
Is Gudbranson a lock for Thursday night??
