I really can't/don't see Koivu winning the cup in Montreal and I can really see the likes of Komisarek or Chipchura being the next captain(s) of this team.
Since both of them are UFA's after next season and have no trade clauses in there contracts, will they agree to be traded at the deadline if we fail to make it to the playoffs next season?
Honestly, I can see Koivu retiring as a Hab....whether he wins a cup with us or not and thats fine by me. As long as he isn't used as our firstline center anymore, he belongs on the team. Koivu should be on the second line for another couple of seasons and then move him to a 3rd line role where he can be responsible defensively and let someone else provide the offence.
If Kovy has a good season next year, I say sign him for at least one more, maybe 2 more seasons.....unless he wants too much money, then just let him go elsewhere.
