Kovalev appreciation thread

Title says it all. I'm disgusted on how some posters just put him down. I know his penalty did really hurt the team in a crucial moment, but after all he's done for the team and the community i can't believe some of you guys went against him.

GO KOVY GO

I can't believe those who jumped on his back aswell, and they call themselves habs fans, hockey experts !?!?!?!? Wow.

Anyway, in the RDS interview that he said he was sorry for the mistake he made, it was selfish and that he wanted to give back to the team for that mistake.

Pure Kovalev.

Say what you want about his penalty but we wouldn't even have been in the game if it wasn't for him. His play led to the Kostitstyn goal, and if A. Kost was able to score, well then Kovalev would've been the hero even BEFORE scoring in OT.

I just wanna see him bring it every shift. He hasn't yet, but that can be attested to the Bruins checking him.

If I was on the Habs, I would've cross checked him in the face after that selfish penalty. If Plekanec and Kovalev keep playing like it's preseason, the Habs are going no where fast.

Good for him for tying it up, but the entire overtime/having to be the hero scenario could have been avoided altogether if he kept his temper in check and didn't take such a dumb penalty. It's great he was able to redeem himself but I would rather he make the smart play and skip the heroics next time.

Stop being a pissed off Koivu fan... Every time theres a thread on Kovalev you always seem to find something negative to say since he took over as captain.

Seriously. Kovalev is Montreal's MVP this season and plays a bad 5min and a few posters want to run him out of town and take his C. Brutal.

Pissed off Koivu fan? Me? . I love Kovalev, I've been a fan of his for almost a decade, I'm on the fence about Koivu.

You must have me confused with Billy Kautsitsin, the other poster.

I dunno about the bad penalty thing. Seems to me that Kovalev reacted to a guy who grounded his face into the ice with his elbow after the breakaway. Not what I would call selfish. I was wondering where the Refs were.

Yes very true, but he's the first to admit it was a bad penalty and it was. Now hockey players are humans before being hockey players and frustration IS a human emotion. What I saw tonight was a CAPTAIN.

I'll take Hamrlik any day, thanks.

Hammer was the best Hab on the ice, and all the love goes to the guy who's fault it was that it went to overtime in the first place.

Okay, then.

Selfish is cherry picking while your team is killing a penalty, which is what put him on that break in the first place

Hamrlik is playing great hockey, and all the love goes to the guy who's fault it was that it went to overtime and the reason why the serie is now 2-0

I've got no problem with Kovy's "selfish penalty" that caused the 5 on 3. Shouldn't have been a penalty, it was a slap on the side, not a hook, after the Bruin defenceman kept him out of the play for an extra couple seconds in a PK situation.

Kovy should have buried a couple more than he has so far this series, he's just trying too hard. He still comes through and knows what winning's all about. The man is awesome.

No doubt, he scored. On a deflection on his 500th PP chance of the game.

I like Kovalev, but I'm not gonna jump all over his bandwagon for scoring in OT wen he played a terrible game. I want the Kovalev of 04, minus the faking a wrist injury and costing his team the game, obviously.
