I think his role is completely misunderstood by most if not all of the Koivu bashers.

In their minds "C" = "Best Player" which should be true for the most part but they also think that Best Player = "Put up tons of goals and points".

While the lack of "in their prime" wingers for him to play with is hurting him statistically, one cannot omit all the other intangibles he bring both on and off the ice.

Bashing Koivu cannot be justified solely on stats, because he brings elements that all successful teams need.
