Imo, his prime years are long gone and the Kovy nickname belongs to Kovalchuk atm. But I see what you're talking about.

And?

Kovalev was Kovy before Kovalchuk had hit puberty. Kovy, to every Penguins fan who remembers Kovalev playing here, will always be Kovalev's nickname.

you don't just lose a nickname when someone else comes in with the same one. We called him Kovy here for a long time, I still have to think about it every time I hear the name Kovy and figure out which is being talked about.

Yeah. I still default to Kovalev.

Always pissed me off that Thrashers fans insisted on calling Kovalchuk 'Kovy' when that shorthand nickname was already taken.

No argument that his prime years are gone, but when Malkin is 38 and still playing, he'll still be Geno regardless of any phenomenal Eugenes that become superstars henceforth.

So Kovy still works
