Of course, he's ignoring the fact that Kovalev has never played center since entering the NHL. He was drafted as a center/winger but the Rangers instantly noticed his freewheeling style and decided he be best suited for the off-wing (right). Putting Kovalev at center is a disaster waiting to happen. He backchecked yesterday...once. That doesn't make him center material. People would be clamoring Ribeiro's name if Kovalev was moved to center.

The Canadiens would probably be better served moving Markov to center, since he probably has more experience at the position and is a far more responsible player. I'm not suggesting move Markov to center...merely overstating Villeneuve's idiocy.
