Talking about Kovy's knee injury.

Kovy always said he was hit again on his knee vs Toronto and liquid started to add-up in his knee, again...

I sense another operation or something major coming for Kovy's knee this season it's not looking good at all.

Thus proving that you don't actually need to be playing to get injured...

Kovalev's been playing very well since being moved to center so I dunno what you talking about.

If it does help heal his injury then maybe he should sit for 1 or 2 weeks or maybe 3 to avoid another surgery.

It would explain the Kostityn call up.

TSN ice chips:

Updated Monday, November 13
Montreal Canadiens: Forward Alexei Kovalev has taken some time off of practicing due to a sore right knee. It's not like I'm going to need surgery or anything like that," he said. - Montreal Gazette

hopefully not!
i was hopping they would show the lines from this morning's practice to see where kost is, but i guess it is still a little early. ill check back later.

It's been documented in a number of places that Kovy is getting daily treatment (physio) on his knee. I haven't heard the word 'surgery' anyplace yet though. Habs are giving him rest for now. We'll see later down the road. It's obviously a chronic injury and will likely affect him every year for the rest of his career.

That pretty much makes him untradeable. He has two more years left at $4.5 million per. It's probably what has slowed him down on the ice as well. He looks like he's skating uphill out there.

I hate to say this but If we could get a decent return for this guy at the trade deadline it wouldnt hurt my feelings at all.

With the way Kovy was skating vs Ottawa it appears that skipping practices is not sufficient rest for his knee, he needs full rest which means games off. With Higgins out that means either playing Murray or calling up someone from Hamilton, probably Laps. Against a struggling Sens team it's not a big problem but facing teams that are playing well it will be.
Should he sit awhile and rest? Can the team's cap afford it?

Give Kovalev some game rests against weaker teams, giving Plekanec the opportunity to play on the second line again with Samsonov and Kotstitsyn. Call up Lapierre to get some time on the fourth line.
