Kovalev in the dog house

Bruce Garrioch from Slam Sports is reporting that Alex Kovalev is quickly entering into coach Carbonneau’s doghouse.

Kovalev openly ripped Carbonneau after a recent loss and it is well known that Kovalev has been reported as possibly being on the trade block as of late. HTR believes that Kovalev was out of line for ripping his coach in the media. Carbonneau and the Habs are not off to a horrible start and there is not talk about removing him from his job … so why try to start a huge debate in the media. Things like that need to stay in the locker room.

HTR believes that when the right offer comes along the Habs will jump at the chance to make a deal. Although Kovalev is a super talented player but teams (especially the media crazy Habs) do not need a player to vent his frustrations through the media.

What is Kovalev worth? What could the Habs expect to get for him?
