- That tells me Kovalev likes to be the main go-to guy, and in New York, that wasn't the case with most of the attention being payed to Lindros, Leetch, Messier, Nedved, Holik and most recently Jagr. Alongside Koivu, Kovalev will get the chance to be a leader both on and off the ice, as the Habs are a team that relies on hard work and character, two attributes the Rangers desperately lack.
IMO that's what makes this such a good fit in Montreal. He is going to come and instantly be on our first line and become our best sniper. I can't wait to see him playing with Koivu and develop some chemistry!
