not for nothing, but while Kovalev hasn't scored many goals, do you think the line of Holik-Rucinsky-Ortmeyer would have as many goals as the holik, etc.? Not sure why many don't realize how much room there is out there on the ice when you have defenses keying on Kovalev, and further, how most of his assists were beautiful passes created from his hard work. Granted I'm a bit disappointed in his goal total, in particular, there's no excuse for his zero PP goals, but considering how that line has played against other top lines, I'm very happy with that (high plus, which is a stat I always hate, but when your defense sucks and you can beat top lines at even strength, that's usually a sign that the forwards are doing something).
