Kovi is shooter, not playmaker (he improved, but not became maker) and Malkin will be used anyway, but as forvard (hold him on blue line is little too much, I guess

Yes, I might agree on Gonchar - I doubt Bill will include him, but I'd take a risk and take him to play in PP only - our D sucks in PP so far.
