With Parise gone, there's no reason to keep Kovy at RW unless he wants to play there.
I know that's stupid. Almost as bad as Kovy having to be on the point on the PP which definitely won't change regardless. He was kept on the right still during times he was split with Parise though wasn't he? Maybe that's cause they didn't want him to switch it up during the playoffs that late in a season.
Kovy looks better in the khl because the competition is lower than the NHL, Tarasenko is awesome, and he's not exerting nearly as much energy defensively as he does with NJ. It has nothing to do with the actual system being played IMO.
Is anyone else scared by the possibility of Kovy having too much fun in the KHL, and the fact that his KHL team is winning and he is dominating that he might refuse to come back to New Jersey until after the KHL season.
Being captain of SKA, I don't think he would want to abandon his teammates midseason to return to NHL should the lockout end in the near future.
No I believe he has to return to the NHL once the lockout is over.
well yea that too. but the way some of the more outspoken players have been makes people go hmmmmmm. hes obligated naturally of course. and hes not a dick, so hell be in jersey the second its official.
ive been watching all their games since he joined them, and its a solid team. bobrovsky has looked pretty damned good too. theyre gonna get ****ed when a number of their better players leave, but they knew this going in.
