Consider it the best move of the summer to have NOT acquired Kovalchuk. He has never been a difference-maker, and does not show up in the playoffs. He was a good player on a bad team… PERIOD! He would have turned every game of yours into a Kovy story instead of a team story… which is what wins championships.
In a year or two, all of you Kings fans will thank your lucky stars that Kovy is not wearing your uniform.
