To answer the first part of your question, no, I do not think Kovalev fits on this team. I love Kovalev as a player, he was one of my favorite Pens when he was here. But he's at his best when he possesses the puck all over the offensive zone. Unfortunately, Sid and Geno both are at their best when they have possession. What fits much better for the Pens right now are "trigger men" type wingers, guys who thrive on the quick shot, one-timer, or rebound.
