If it’s true that Alex Kovalev’s agent is the reason Kovalev won’t be in a Habs uniform this year, are you upset? I am. And my Russian wife is.
Whether it’s true or not, the story goes that Bob Gainey offered Kovy exactly what the Senators ended up signing him for, but Kovalev’s agent took his sweet time responding. So Gainey couldn’t wait and had to move on and sign others instead.
