It's going to be an interesting summer to see if the habs get rid of the older guys and throw the young guys into the fire or if they sign koivu and kovalev and hope that plekanec, the kostys etc can come back to where they were in 07-08. IMO its time to let koivu and kovalev go, start over with a new coach (roy) a new captain (markov) and rebuild for the future.
If some of the French media have a problem with Koivu how do you think they'll like Markov? Markov has enough responsiblity without burdening him with the C. Koivu has earned it and would be a great #2 centre, he isn't the problem.
