dont forget that he had knee surgery during the year.

But anyways, the point is that kovalev is the player that the opposition are most feaful of when facing the habs

Kovalev is a gamebreaker and one of the most pure talented players in the game even at age 33/34.

the question with kovalev has always been consistency and thats just accepted with him now because he wont change at his age. Consistency is the issue.

Remember his first game back from surgery against ottawa. He ate up chara the whole game and was the reason that the habs came back to win that game even though he wasn't even in game shape.

Kovalev can basically dictate how many points he wants by deciding how many nights off he wants to take
