Yes I know he is old and does not move his feet much, but he has always had wicked hands and a crazy shot maybe this is the guy we need to open up some room on the ice for Kesler

I swear most of those goals in the video use the same deke before he shoots. He's likely slower now, and once teams start figuring out how to pressure him off the puck, he becomes pretty useless.

With his monstrous total of 1 goal in 22 KHL games, Kovalev is clearly still an offensive dynamo. Git 'r done MG. If that doesn't work we should go after Scott Gomez.

I think not for us. But maybe would be acceptable for late deadline pickup. If cheap and with injuries we needed offense. Yeah, then I'd roll the dice on him. Otherwise forget it, we'd need Messier back to kick his arse in gear.

Let's see if we can entice Pavel Bure to come out of retirement to play for us because he's got awesome hands too!
