Kovalev would do fine on any of those teams you mentioned, Seems to do better when he isn't "the go to guy".IMO

Yeah they are all around 6 foot, but that wasn't the point...the poster wqho did that thread was saying that we have to be bigger, but we are full of player of around 6 foot and he thinks we have to get more players of at least 6'3'' (that's what I'm starting to consider big).

Anyways, none of those players will be that tall...see the point now

Would Kovalev be ready to play by the trade deadline? It was announced just a few days ago that he would be out for 3 weeks. Wouldn't that raise doubts in the mind of any GM who was interested in him? Or at least lower the asking price?

I think we are too small up front too. The main glaring weakness is the size up the middle. We can't go on with Koivu and another small centreman. We need a big #1centreman and a puck moving dman.
The higgins ryder koivu line hasn't won a puck battle in months it seems and our 2nd line with Zhoggie, Sammy, and Pleks are too similar in size and playing style like Koivu. One of them has to go and hopefully its Sammy or Zhoggie.

If Kovalev is to be traded, I'm more worried with finding someone who who would come in to replace him. Kovalev may not be terribly productive this year but he remains intimidating. He has premier skill (if not results) and the Habs need at least one guy like that.

Is Horton or Ruutu capable of playing centre?

Who would be the easiest to attain?
Getzlaff
Jeff Carter
Mueller
Toews
M. Koivu
Backstrom

Kovalev IS too big to handle. Still, I think he has 13 goals to his record.

I have a feeling that we will never see Kovalev in a Habs uniform again. It's over ! He is probably injured.. but lots of players would play anyway. Since the famous post game meeting between players, he has not played. He is waiting for gainey's phone call to pack up and leave. Good riddance.

Too bad. So much talent. So much waste. Bye Alex

Hopefully, Gainey can get at least a high draft pick for him.

Its not about size its about heart ...and we didnt had a lot in the last few game . Seriously plekanek isnt a legit second center ... on most team he will be a fourth line center ... Kovalev is the best habs player but he play with such poor linemate . Atleast ribeiro was a borderline second center . The real problem of this team is that we dont have 2 first center its simple as that . It will be a big mistake to get rid of Kovalev . Mark my word ... Its a clutch player ... there not a lot of player like him in the nhl .

what are you talking about? Kovalev was playing with this injury, but he wasn't able to do it any longer...

He's quite important to the team, like it or not...

Montreal has about 2 million people and probably close to 2.5-3.0 million if you count the surroundings. It's big enough already.

He's 3rd in team scoring, and if he would have been playing on a better line from day one, it would have been better. He's underacheiving in Montreal, but he's still one of our best player...

+1 . .


He played how much games with Samsonov who was only making big circle around the net , until he loosed the puck , and a 9 goals career center who is only alive since 15-20 games ?

Playing injured . what do peoples expect ?

Ok mister ...have you seen a lot of second center that will finish the year with 45 points .... Because plekanek is on the pace for that ...

Everybody in the league will agree that he is third ou fourth line center maybe fourthliner was an exageration but he is not a second center ...

When you have that kind of depth, it doesn't matter if you are big or small....somebody is going to put the puck in the net sooner or later. The only time we score is when we are on the power play.

So, the problem isn't size.. it's lack of skill.
