Yes, he isn't as fast as he once was. But he is still one heck of a center and has been carrying the load this season with Pleky and his line not clicking yet. I seriously can't believe people finding negative things to say about him right now.
But on a more positive note, I am as thrilled as you are about the fact that he finally has the quality winger he deserves.
I've said this before and I'll say this again. Habs fans want an elite all star forward, but we already have him. His name is Saku Koivu. He is by far the best player on our team. He's a leader, he's a great two way guy, he's great on faceoffs, he's our captain and wears the C proudly and always performs above his own level in the playoffs
The guy is a machine, one of the most respectable players in the NHL. The guy would never hurt a fly and has been through so much in his career here in Montreal, he's one of the few players I could not bare to see leave.
He is what has kept this team together for so long and continues to be a part of the core makeup that makes this team what it is today. He is the centerpeice of our team, he IS an elite forward in the NHL, sometimes the scoresheet isn't where his skills are shown but you really see how much it hurts to not have him on the ice, especially in the playoffs.
For many years people have said he isn't a 1st line c, that he isn't a great offensive forward, but he's always performed when it has mattered and he gives 100% every night and 110% when it actually matters. This guy is a class act and a rare 1/1000 type NHL player imo. He's even put up with ******** and judgement a lot of the time, only to come back from cancer, bad injuries, and always be the habs knight in shining armor. To me, he may not be quite the definition of a 1st line C, but he is to me, the definition of what a leader or captain is and that makes him even more priceless a player to have imo.
