I have no idea why the islanders haven't figured this one out. it seems pretty obvious. Alex Kovalev is not working out in ottawa and is clearly need of a change of scenery. Im sure ottawa would love to reduce payroll and we could get him for next to nothing. I think Alexi Kovalev would be a perfect fit on the islanders. The islanders with all their injuries, especially to Streit and Okposo, are in desparate need of someone who can quaterback the power play and and add some playmaking and scoring punch. Kovelev was a stud in Montreal when he was a captain or Alt-captain, and can bring a lot to the table when he is motivated. I think he could work really well with Tavares and have a prominent role on our top two lines.
when you think about it it his contract ain't that bad, especially when we have Mr. Glass Hip himself, Ricky DP!, locked up for the next 12 years who has played about 7 games in the past 3 years for us, and of those 7 games he carried about a commanding 4.50 GAA and .870 Save percentage in each of those games!!!!!!!!!!. Thanks Buddy!!! I think you could get more productivity out of my 89 year old grandfather than DP.
