Pens fan from Montreal here...

Kovalev and Sammy on the same line is just crazy!
I've said it from the day he signed.
All my buddies were in their own world of Sammy-Kovy line... But its stupid to think it will work...
It won't work! They both like to play around with the puck TOO MUCH and they're not finishers. Koivu is not a pure finisher either.

From a neutral view:

Ryder - Higgins - Kovalev
Samsonov - Koivu - Lantendresse

would this work?

I think Kovalev needs the best sniper on the team on his line... with Ryder, you guys will see a big difference in offence...

Also, I noticed that Kovalev has his up and down shifts. If Carbo puts him on the 3rd or 4th for a game or 2... might help him rebound... When he was in Pittsburgh, he was best on the PP point. Why not try him and Souray on the point? That gives you 2 very powerfull shots from the point...
