Well with no one with a decent shot on the point this might have some positive effects... It's not like the PP can get much worse :S
I think it's a good way to mix things up actually. Teams have done a good job of neutralizing Kovy's PP play from the RW half-boards for most of the season. Without any scoring threat from the right point, a winger can cheat back a little bit and take away some of Kovy's space and pass lanes.
Moving Kovy to the point puts a strong shot back there, plus an excellent pair of eyes and hands for moving the puck around. PKing wingers won't be able to collapse as much, because they will have to protect against Kovy's shot much more than Lang's, Tang's, or SKang"s (I had to make Sergei rhyme here.) The move should open up some room down low for the forwards, and force the PKer's to skate a bit more, and hopefully get more tired. These are two things that the PP has needed for awhile, and Kovy on the point might lead to them happening.
