Not so much ethnic bias in the organization that I'm really meaning to refer to, but more-so the fans. Since day 1 Lat has been chanted as if he's some god sent down from the heavans to save our team. He's an average player, yet he's given so much credit. Kovalev has a crappy +/-. He's still putting up points, he may not be playing 100% which kind of sucks, but people say "Trade Kovalev", guess what, our team can do with out LAT, it can't do with out Kovalev. Look at the points on our team. Screw the +/- as we are a PP team and PP doesn't count for +/-. Kovalev is one of our best players. Yet people say trade him.
When a Quebec born player isn't doing so good we seem to be so forgiving though.
Don't see why that is. I really don't. Bottom line is Kostitsyn after all this time deserves to be an NHLer and if he was given the chance, could've been on our 1st line right now instead of lat, or possibly replacing ryder's crappy performance this season. They didn't give him the chance though. Why is that. Why is it that the kid who did nothing to deserve it gets an entire season, but the guy whose been playing in the AHL tearing it up and wants the chance badly, doesn't get squat. Sorry but 1 game compaired to Latandresse's 30 isn't a fair chance.
