This actually reminded me of when Saku played in the Nagano Olympics. He was what, all of 23 years old, but he was the one barking orders at veteran stars like Selanne and Numminem and the ol' mouth, Esa Tikkenan, the Woodpecker and even to a hall of famer like Jarri 'Skim Milk' Kurri during practises!!! This was quite impressive to see, especially when they accepted this little terrier's barks as orders!!!
Leadership like this is not something that you can teach and I was so surprised to see that these ol' war horse guys like Kurri and Tik who were so much older and who have been through so much more compared to this kid, were okay with Koivu telling them what to do...as everyone is slowly seeing, it's pretty evident that this Saku Koivu is quite a special guy!
