Kovalev should have been a goalie

I was reading a friends post about Team Canada's 2010 Goalies and got to figuring... Kovalev should have been a Goalie!

Here is my evidence:

  • He is moody, mysterious, and unpredictable.
  • He loves the spotlight.
  • His brilliance can inspire a team, and absence drag a team into despair.
  • He loves to hold onto the puck.
  • He doesn't like to skate much.
  • He doesn't like getting hit.
  • He can dazzle with the puck.
  • His performance alone can get coaches fired.

Any other additions? I love his new nickname: The Artiste. So appropriate.

If Halak crumbles, and Price continues his bi-polar play, maybe Kovalev should strap on the pads!

  1. That's awesome! He would be an angry goalie, and oh the adventures with the puck. Be entertaining to watch, feel bad for the forwards that would get their calves hacked up by his moodiness.
