wow, you just dont get it, you even contradict urself...

ur so single minded you cant even put together that maybe : how about, ..PLEKS had a great year because he was playing with kovalev last year? this year, pleks and andrei k (from time to time) just dragged kovy down SO bad, and look at what kovy's done without them, .case closed, your out of ur league here JL

someone didnt see the hit on tucker a couple of years ago :/

Thanks for proving my point... MORE physical is NOT the same as AS physical.

God... you're annoying. Your wording clearly shows Tanguay is either :

A. Exactly as physical as Kovalev (unlikely considering your love for Tanguay and irrational hate for Kovalev, thats what we call reading between the lines. both are also different player, it would be surprising for anyone to say two players are exactly the same in any aspect of the game since "physicality" isn't something that can be quantified (unless you believe "hit" stats are worth the world (they aren't obviously), but the two players don't have nearly the same number of hits)

B. More physical than Kovalev (likely what you mean, seeing as you said "AT LEAST as physical as Kovy", indicating he likely is more).

I don't even know whats the point of arguing about that anyways. You hate the guy so much your opinion wouldn't change if he won the Conn Smythe. Meanwhile the majority here won't start hating on a guy that is pretty much maintaining this team afloat.

I can also say you are evading many good points made by a lot of players by simply trying to argue semantics with me.

Come on now, let's not be ridiculous here. Kovalev is a very talented individual but he's far from being known for his physical play...

Wow.. you really don't watch hockey do you? Or is your hate for Kovalev so great you can't see anything. If there is one thing that is well known about Kovalev is that he is very physical, taking and giving hits.

You can make any stupid comment you want, but Kovalev is by far the best offensive player on this team and if not the heart then he is definitely the SOUL.

I would rather have 3 Kovalevs than 6 Tanguay who seems to be your mancrush

Three of the biggest myths about Kovy.

1. He doesn't care
2. He's slow
3. He's shy physically.

Trust me. He's respected and feared around the league and rightfully so.

And not just hits. His work along the board is worth mentioning too, he can overpower many players and come out of a battle with control of the puck.

Go get the Tanguay hit highlight video then come back. No one is saying he's known for his physical play, but you are saying Tanguay is "at least" as physical. Now, I didn't captain three teams to NHL championships, but I think anyone who's watched this team would laugh at that comment, and your subsequent replies.

Do you think Kovalev to play like Ovechkin or what? You are the one saying that Kovalev has 1 hit in 3 years. I have prove you wrong

And nobody is saying Kovalev is a physical guy but between Tanguay or Kovalev. Id say Kovalev is more physical.

Anyways, you really look ridiculous in this thread. I know you dont like him and thats ok, but dont come here and tell us we dont need Kovalev in this team.
