If Shero hadn't signed Sullivan and we lost TK to free agency, I would have been willing to give Kovy a 1 year/1 mil deal to see if he can gel with geno. All malkin needs is someone with hands to play some give and go. DB isn't kovy's biggest fan I'd imagine but if we were in dire need of a RW, I would have taken a gamble.
Can't knock Kovy for his short stint here.... he was playing with a bunch of no talent grinders, which isn't his game at all. I think if he was paired with Sid/Geno, he definitely would have produced.
If anything he brought Letestu and Neal down. Cris Conner brought more offense to the table than he did. I understand why he was brought in but we would have been better to just keep the 7th round pick.
I wouldn't be surprised if he has trouble scoring in the KHL.
