Kane hasn't really shown me that dominance yet. But he has plenty of time to change my mind.
What kind of dominance could Kovalev have? Are you taking over the course of a season or a game?

If you taking over the course of a game I don't see why you place so much value on that given how Kovalev could disappear for large stretches of time. While Kovalev was a very good player I think you are vastly overstating the impact he could have on a team if you feel he could show the same level of dominance as Jagr. Sure, perhaps for a shift or two. But certainly not for large stretches, which is what ultimately is the what is valuable for a team.

Also, in terms of importance to his team, Kane has already shown that he can carry a similar offensive burden to Kovalev if you look at their offensive production in regards to their teammates.
