Consider the source. Kovalchuk's detractors will say anything to justify their claims that he is a troublemaker. The simple fact is, he is one of the most exciting and dedicated young players we've seen in years. It's amazing that he is shouldering so much responsibility at such a young age.

Yup. But c-carp achieved exactly what he was trying to achieve - take our attention away from Ilya's GAME. :p


PS. The funniest thing is, Kovalchuk was more excited for Petro's goal then for his own. He barely did anything (aside from having a big smile on his face) after scoring his goal. Bad, bad Ilya - how dare you smile???

Something has gone wrong:

21 goals, 21 assists, 42 points

21 assists?! Usually his goals outnumber his assists 3-1 or something. Shame on you, Ilya. :p

P.S. Someone call him and tell him that he's not allowed to celebrate the goals his way...

Ilya is going to score his 100th career goal this season, at the age of 20.

How remarkable is that? He will score his 200th point this season also, again, at the age of 20.

Without Heatley, he's the only one other teams have to worry about? Ilya won't even be the leading scorer on the Thrashers this year. A player who's played 9 games less will outpoint him.

Plus, everyone knows that he is the player to key in on for the Thrashers. Without Heatly......it is just that much easier to do.

Atlanta 1 Man Team?

Hmmmm...3 pages of talk of how Kovalchuk is the only player on Atlanta...interesting. I'll bet 98% of these "genuis" posters have seen 1 Atlanta game or less all year. Savard is 6 points behind Ilya in points...this after missing 9 games with a bad high ankle sprain where screws were inserted into his legs. Wake up people!!!

Don't even try to compare Savard to Kovalchuk

I was surprised to see Kovalchuk's willingness to pass last night. You hear so much about how all he does is shoot (and even the clueless ESPN announcers said as much), but he showed in the game last night that he can be just as dangerous of a passer as well. His assist was a nice soft pass to a dead area of the offensive zone and his goal was a off of a return feed of a nice pass of his own. Kovalchuk showed more ice vision than I remember from the last time I watched him.

He's always had it.

Now he just has people that can score off those passes.

I think all he was trying to do was point out that Kovalchuk is by no means the only offensive threat that Atlanta has. Kozlov, Savard and McEachern are on pace for 60-70 point seasons. Petrovicky chipping in 10 goals, Cowan and Aubin giving more offense than everyone thought (before they were injured at least).

Kovy

Teams key on Kovy with mixed results. We lead the East in scoring so somebody else is knocking in goals besides him. He can pass well and does see the ice well but he does lead the world in shots so more than likely he's going to fire away.

Yeah, we should banish both of them from the NHL. Well, for Sid, "Future-NHL".

And let's add Havlat to that list (dirty, lil' b@stard, right?)...

Now, now...don't be so hard on Ilya. Kovalchuk is nearly as good as Marc.
