20 year old, highest drafted Russian ever, scores the 3rd most points on the team to bring the Cup to Manhattan? Secret got out by '93/94, my friend, and was on display for many years as a secondary scorer and top penalty-killer. Lots of people forget that last part, because, admittedly, his offensive skills ARE that distracting. Even as late as '07/08, when Montreal managed a 100+ point season, Kovalev actually finished with the 4th most PK time of all Habs forwards (more than Kostopolous or Koivu) on top of also having a huge bounce back year of 84 points - 1st on the Habs.

And in between there's more than just one season (even just cherry picking his 95 point season as the Pens' PK time leader among forwards and second highest scorer). IMO, of course.
