Last year everyone was on Kovalev for not producing and now its Koivu. The question I have is why don't they ever play together?? When it was Zednik, Koivu and Kovalev they were awesome. It does not make sense to break up pleky from Kovalev now but it could had worked last year...

I still have faith in Koivu and I think he can be great. Remember when we lost to Findland in the last Olympics it was him and Selanne that looked unbelievable. He will be great just give some of his linemates to mature a bit.

Please, keep Higgins and Koivu away from each other. They've been good the past few years but their games don't mesh together right now and it seems counterproductive to have them on the same line. Having Higgins be the veteran on his line will help him.
