Pittsburgh Penguins sent Kovalev to NY rangers last year and 9 other players during the season... en route to get the first overall pick, Fleury, the top ranked goalie. This season they already traded Straka, their scoring leader, a couple a days ago. Mario Lemieux and his team don't have enough money to pay Straka but they do have big bucks to pay Fleury. They clearly have an eye on Ovechkin. I mean, they are in a process to rebuild the team. They just repeat what made other team previuously, as Quebec Nordiques. And that is fine.
