I can't speak for our younger stars and prospects, but for our veteran players, Koivu is easily the most reliable scorer when the going gets tough. He may be an injury prone guy, but he plays through the pain and his effort in the 7 playoff games he played last year is proof. The bad eggs in the media will blame him, but it's less his fault than people like Kovy. I don't have the faith that Kovalev (well he seems to get goals but not when it's in the real nitty gritty), Tanguay and Higgins can provide the big time sparks we'll need. I'm not sure about Lang, but all I know is that Koivu is our most clutch performer. That's kinda sad considering our depth of players with better goal scoring abilities than him.
