Kukla's Korner Hockey
by The Upper Canadien on 12/05/10 at 02:10 AM ET
The Canadiens looked great this afternoon, defeating the San Jose Sharks 3-1. When Roman Hamrlik gets a breakaway, you know luck is going your way.
More interesting? This nugget from Bruce Garrioch’s weekly column:
“Montreal GM Pierre Gauthier is trying to add a forward with some size. While Gauthier would like to move underachieving C Scott Gomez and his $7.37-million cap hit, that’s not going to happen. Maybe the Habs will take back RW Alex Kovalev from the Senators. He’d like to finish his career in Montreal and he sure looks like this might be it for him ... “
Now it’s not really a rumour per se, but it’s an interesting idea. I am biased, because I love L’Artiste, but would I welcome Kovalev back? I’d go as far as saying I would encourage it. Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Kostitsyn had special chemistry with Kovalev, the Habs need another big body up front, and his shot on the power play would be a lethal alternative to Mike Cammalleri’s.
So yes, I’m on the bring back Kovalev bandwagon. Heck, we can fit his salary now. What would the Senators want?
Come on Gauthier, let’s get it done.
