Let Kovalchuk Play His Game



Does anyone remember when Kovalchuk first arrived in NJ and when he was with Atlanta how he would never come back on the forecheck and would just hang out in the neutral zone waiting for opportunities to score? I remember back in 2010 saying wow this guy never plays defense. He would just sit between the red line and the oppositions blue line and wait and never skate back. I recall reading articles that said Kovy doesn't trust his teammates, people would call him selfish. Then last season the coaching staff tried to change his style to make him a more well rounded player, and they did. My question is why? This was a guy who was scoring 50 goals per season and is looking like a 25-30 goal scorer at best last year and this year too. David Clarkson has more goals than Kovy for crying out loud! I don't see the harm in reverting Kovy back to his old style. Let Parise and Henrique fall back and let Kovy hang or JUST SPLIT UP KOVALCHUK AND PARISE!!!!!
