People recognize his hard work but also recognize that he was put in a place he should not have been put in.
Fans deserved the best team possible after 15 years of mediocre play. And if it means with Koivu, well they deserve to see him back. But Koivu will not be able to take back a 1st line duty. You can't have a 1st line centerman that can't play more than 18 minutes.
I wish the Habs had another centre skilled enough to play on the first line for more than 18 minutes. Do you know of one? Don't say Lang. He's too old.
