I just worry that CKA isn't going to ask him to play a lick of defense and he gets some bad habits back.

Ugh, good point. Someone needs to tape a photo of a very stern-looking Jacques Lemaire (so basically any photo of him) in Kovy's locker.

That's not worrisome at all considering that any "bad habits" he had before here were overblown and never really were an issue.

Kovy played the same way any star player on a bad team would play.

Okay but he was a ton better on D last year than his first two years here. Can't really argue that.

Hell Zeon no player is perfect, and most every has a weakness. Kovy wasn't too good at D before he came to the Devils or really before Lemaire came back in 2011. He has gotten a ton better though, and if not for all the shorthanded goals he was on the ice for he may have finished the season with a plus rating.

It wasn't that he was bad defensive player, it's just that he didn't care and didn't make much of an effort to play defense.

He still isn't a great defensive player, he is improving though.. It's just now he actual comes back and even if he is just in the way, it's better than him not being there at all. Now he knows where to be, and he makes a good effort to be there. If he sees that a 3-on-1 is breaking the other way, he will skate back to make it a 3-on-2. Would he make the perfect decision all the time, no, but he's there.

Yes.

As early as 10AM if they play in Slovakia/Czech Republic. Usually a couple of hours later.
Joining the Rush is pretty amazing

One of the rare days I get to sleep late. I wish it started a little later though like 11:00 maybe.

A little off topic, but at least hopefully I can watch some AHL games. I've missed the Adam's, and YaYo. Looking at Henrique's game log through the playoffs he wasn't a minus for a game after the Florida series. He played a lot with Kovy too. I'm gonna miss the Poni-Henny-Kovy line.

Hey Jacques we know you watched Kovy's game today his first over in the KHL, and what did you see?

''I saw a lot of things''

What did you think of his defense?

''UHHHH..... UHHHH...... I can't talk about it. I can't talk about. I would love to talk about it, but I can't. Thank you''
