Outside of Points. Kovalev pwn Wayne .
Wayne was a genius to understand play . Because outside of it he was quite average . I just don't like Wayne.
At least Kovy don't hide behind 24 bodyguard .
why should anyone take what you say with any seriousness what so ever after you say something like that? i mean, the fact you say that makes everything you say about gretz vs kovy to be fully subjective right? of course.. i mean its like arguing britney is more talented then aguilera because you think britney is easier (and therefore aguilera sucks).
Kovalev's skills are incredible, but his hockey sense is average at best.
I think his hockey sense is above average...specially with the years of experience in the NHL. Just for an example that game he had last year with 4 assists...that was awesome hockey sense right there...
kinda funny sicne he has never scored more than 100 pts in a season? lots of heart yeah but better than cros, gretz Mario, ah a big no, and I do love to watch him play but not the greatest. what will he be remember for? getting whacked in the hand to draw a penatly in the playoffs three years back I think?
Kovalev has the size and raw skill to have incredible puck control. He is better than datysuk at keeping the puck in the corners but then again datysuk had the most takeaways in the league. Kovalev has good hockey sense, why would he have below average hockey sense? What are people smoking? He clearly has above average hockey sense, but he doesn't have elite hockey sense or determination. It's like when we read about a prospect and his tools but no toolbox stuff. Kovalev has elite skill, there's no doubt about it, where he ranks all time? I don't know, but he's high up there in raw skill alone. Also, although his hockey sense isn't like the greats, his creativity is also above average and compensates on the powerplay with slick moves and passes.
