However I doubt the team would be where they are.
Koivu is still producing just fine considering that Ryder isn't scoring near what people expected and Higgins has been off and on.
Koivu isn't playing top PP minutes anymore this season.
This year:52Pts 26PPP
Last year:75Pts 43PPP
He's doing just fine considering he's sharing top ice time with the Plekanec line.

One thing I do have a problem with his the penalties though, way too many.
Anyways he's the Captain of our Northeast division leading habs, I can't rag on him.
I love reading that, but it's still weird to see it.
