So far as I can tell, the Habs have no body (of near equal talent) in the organization to take their respective places when they 'HANG THEM UP" (which makes signing impact UFAs a huge prioroty)!
Kovalev and Koivu aren't gone yet! I definitely think the Kostitsyns might put up better numbers over their careers than Kovalev. Not many players in the history of the game can match that guy's talent, but I think the ASK will have similar/better stats over the length of their careers respectively. As for Koivu I don't see anyone that can do what he does in the organization right now. Plekanec is a good 2nd line center and his numbers will start to match those of Koivu, but I don't think Plekanec will ever be as good as Koivu.
