I love Koivu, and while he has a huge amount of heart, grit isn't exactly his game. He's tenacious, chippy at times. But he's a finesse player at heart.

The Habs have had a historical lack of grit at centre, that much is dead on correct.

Mind you, we have a historical lack of grit at left and right wing too
What's the difference between heart and grit? In my book and most people who watch hockey it means the same thing.

Saku is nothing if not gritty, nobody else in the NHL wins as many battles against bigger/stronger players. If that's not grit, I don't know what is!
