Bob Gainey announced yesterday that the struggling Alex Kovalev will be staying home while the Habs travel to Washington and Pittsburgh before returning home for Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Senators. Gainey released the info at a press conference; there has been no public word from Kovalev and likely won’t be.
So what does this mean for Kovy? I’m personally hoping that Gainey is and has shopped him and that we will not see him in a red, blue and white sweater again. He’s a great player but he’s got a horrible attitude and he has yet to be a formidable presence on the team this year. The real question is: who wants him? I’d guess he would be a difficult player to trade given all the trouble with him this year.
