Koivu is well respected by his teammates , Koivu gives the exemple on the ice and works hard . But seriously , a leader is more than someone who just gives " the good exemple " . To the limit , you can say that Koivu is an inspiration to put effort , but nothing more .

Koivu is like all these old pictures of Habs fames , on the wall of the Bell Center . They are all respected because of their contribution and for what they did . That's it , That's all .

But is he the guy to bring his team to another level ? is he the guy to keeps everybody going in the same direction ? is he the guy to find the words his teammates want to hear , betwen 2 periods ? Is he the guy able to change the momentum of the game in one shift ? Is he the guy the players want to play for ? NOT AT ALL .

Kovalev is far to be perfect , but when he's having the big role , he plays with passion and it seems that the other players follow him and that they play TOGETHER .
