Koivu
 
I am not usually into rumors and "hear say" comments, but I have a friend in Montreal who is in frequent contact with some of the habs players and he tells me that he was under the impression that this might be Koivu's last contract with the Canadiens or the NHL for that matter, apparently he said that his knee probably won't keep up for too much longer and he wants to make sure his knee is well for when he does retire or head back to Finland.
I don't know if this is true, however, it does make sense.
I am just a messenger, so, yeah!

It wouldn't surprise me at all. Koivu does not have the speed he did a few years ago and even though he is a much smarter player he still has many injury problems. With the way some fans and media treat him, it wouldnt surprise me.

ya, that would suck though. maybe that's why he's been part of some trade rumours. he could be useful for a cup contending team. mind u, we can still use him too, and it's hard to trade away a player that's been so involved in the community like he has...he's THE player for many a kid
