His offensive game was nowhere to be seen all last season. He couldn't do anything with the puck, he couldn't carry the puck into the zone and setup goals and he didn't score on many of his chances. I seen last year as a huge disappointment for Koivu and if he doesn't turn it might be time to part ways with him....IMO.

I want a leader who is going to lead by his play on the ice. I don't care how good he may or may not be in the dressing room....I want someone who will go out and play hard every game and put points on the board because thats what a good leader is supposed to do. Thats what Sundin always done in Toronto. If the team was struggling and not scoring goals....Sundin always took it upon himself to put the puck in the net and lead the team with his play on the ice. Koivu has done it before....but not as often as a good leader should.
the Idea of playing koivu on a shutdown line really scares me, he has to play on the second line. If anything, plek is going to end up on the 3rd line if sundin comes.

yeah its true, koivu with 93 pim and kovy with 70. I think both of them have to work on this...

but last year, how many times has koivu been called for hooking in the offensive end... I recall at least 5-6 minors when we were on the pp.

Don't let this thread die!!

It stands for everything non-sundin!!
