Kovalev Signs With the Senators

Well, Gainey said his time in Montreal was done. Kovie's off to Ottawa. Can't say I'm going to miss him. As a Habs fan he was the most frustrating player I've ever watched. As good as anyone when he turned it up a notch, but most of the time he underachieved and rarely even looked like he cared.

The worst part is I guarantee he will light up the Habs every time he plays them. John LeClair anyone?

Wasn't LeClair lighting up everyone after he left the Habs? I still remember being shocked at how good he became overnight.

Anyway, the Kovalev signing really surprised me. I don't know if it's what the Sens need, but having three guys capable of 30-40 goals and another doing 40-50 is probably a good thing (I know Heater wants out, but I can pretend that he's going to stay :cheesygri ). The pressure is definately going to be distributed, so maybe it'll work out.

$5 million/year for this guy? Was the market really that competitive for him, or the Sens were the only ones who showed the $$$. A pissed off Spezza, crazy Heatley and they add Kovalev, interesting stuff.

I have a terrible feeling Kovalev is going to light up the habs whenever they meet. When he is motivated and playing hard he is one of the best.

He is on a downhill slide, and not motivated at all other than personal ego.

Exactly, which is why I think he will light up his old team, personal reasons.
