That's not true...there's several players on this team who have as good or even better vision than Koivu now, Markov, Kovalev, AK46, SK74, Tanguay...Koivu's skills have already begun erode, he's basically a non threat in shooting situations. That's not to say he can't be an effective player, because he is, he's still got a high hockey IQ and his work rate on the ice is usually pretty high.

Zednik and Bulis was a long time ago, at least in hockey years and Koivu's not any getting any younger.
