Did you even watch the playoffs? Koivu was our most physical forward and I say that with no hyperbole whatsoever. He was the only player on the ice who didn't look scared to actually try and hit Chara. Aside from maybe Laraque.

Remember we haven't won JACK since his capitancy. Gone through 3 GMs, 5 Coaches and almost 100% turnover in the playing roster. At SOME fkn point the onus falls on the only remaining variable.
Yeah have you taken a look at those rosters? I encourage you to do so. The only year we had a competent team that could have done some damage in the playoffs was 07-08, and Koivu had 9 points in 7 games...and certainly wasn't to be blamed for the loss against the Flyers.
