— What do you think about Ilya Kovalchuk, who lost his place in the “Los Angeles”?
— I have no idea what happened there. But in may we played together in the national team Russia at the world championship. Covey is a living legend. As he has already played matches, and how it was. Kovalchuk is one of those players who should be in the hockey Hall of fame.
Furthermore, Ilya is still playing very well. I can only guess what happened in “Los Angeles”. But will not discuss it. Let me just say that Covey is a hard worker, techie, and he’s fine.
