Turn on Montreal radio this morning, and the general feeling is that Alex Kovalev is a terrible person. Just awful. He's gotta go. Trade him for pucks. Addition by subtraction.
Hold on a second: Kovalev was THE guy last year. He has been THE guy for small parts of this year. Yes, he's in a slump, but he didn't steal a baby or rob a bank. He's just had a bad 10 games. He'll snap out of it. Let him play through it.
The general feeling seems to be that the Schneider signing was a good one. Let's see what kind of impact he makes tomorrow against the Capitals.
