Something we have to considere... As much as Koivu and some other played bad lately, the first line, led by Higgins and Koivu was the locomotive of this team in the first half of the season, that was the only line we were relying on to generate some offense night after night while Kovalev was quite atrocious, quite lazzy and quite uneffective... Kovalev has played better since the All star game break, his legs are more in movement and the efforts are better but this is not enough, especially after the last game he played where every players, even Samsonov were working hard trying to win this one badly outside mister Kovalev... Actually Kovalev is paying for his lack of effort and passion during the first half of the season, the team isnt winning anymore, Koivu has little fuel left in the tank and Kovy has to give alot more to this team even if it improved in the whole lately... It seems like when his teammates are working and dedicated to play big hockey, he is the only one making his game at a lower level.. He has to be part of the team, connect with his teammates and show some EMOTIONS!
