Exactly, thats the problem with the team, not only Koivu. Everybody has to play 110% to win a game because they are not a their place.

Koivu is a great second line center. Ryder, Higgins, Lantendresse are good 2nd line wingers. Thats why everybody is in a slump right now, they all played all over their head so they are simply exausted now.

Kovalev could play on the first line if we give him the chance and give him a real 1st center, like Forsberg, he could be extremely dangerous. Like i said before, people still think that Kovy is the kind of player that make his teammate better but you guys are wrong. Since when did he made his linemate good? He IS the player that play better when he play with good linemate. Same thing for Samsonov but Gainey gave them so much money that gives them responsabilities that they never had.
