I don't buy the argument that Koivu is forced to play with inexperienced or lesser wingers. He had his chance on the top line with Kovalev and he simply couldn't deliver as well as Pleks. Everybody has played with Koivu and just isn't a top line center. He honestly doesn't deserve to play on the top line.

I think the main problem is he is paid to be a top line center. He acts like he is the focal point of the team. If he accepted his role as the second line center and spent his energy trying to mentor the younger players instead of complaining, then he might increase his level of respect.
