Julien & Koivu

"It's part of the learning experience," Julien said. "Mike Komisarek was out there because he was playing well and he earned the right to be out there. If he wasn't playing well, he would have been on the bench.

"But if Mike Komisarek is going to be the player we know he can be, he has to be allowed to play and learn from his mistakes."


Julien is talking about the Komisarek giveaway that led to TB's OT goal. I think his attitude is awesome: rather than castigate, Julien builds for the future.

"If you lose 4-0 in the playoffs, I don't consider that a great season," Koivu said Wednesday. "We've gone too far to quit now and feel sorry for ourselves and say we did some good things."

IMO, Koivu is turning into a great leader for the Habs. He plays with heart and inspiration on the ice every shift and the quote above says it all: There's no ****ing quit in Koivu - never. And there's no quit in me: I believe, just like Koivu believes.
