The Ranger PP doesn't always operate effectively. They don't win the battles down low for one. There aren't any battles in front of the net for two. There aren't screens set up for three. Those are problems of Kovalev, and the team as a whole.
I dunno, the way I look at it is he's supposed to be the go to guy on offense, the guy whose supposed to make it happen and take control. That's exactly the role he gets paid to do but it seems like he usually plays like just another spoke in the wheel. Another Anson Carter, if you will.
