Well, that's possible but I suppose it depends on how you define elite and maybe even depends a bit on how we rate Kane among the top wingers during his time in the league even we want to make that comparison.
But Kovalev had a few very good seasons in Pittsburgh as well as a good spell in Montreal he should get credit for.
However, I definitely agree with the point of your post that Kovalev was not viewed as an elite winger for a very long period in his career whereas Kane will likely be in that elite category for a much longer period.
