Picking up Koivu is an intriguing idea. He's young, a captain, wins faceoffs, plays on the PK and PP, good two way player that points up points. To have him, Legwand and Wilson as our top 3 centers would certainly make us very strong up the middle. However, I don't know that we give up one of the best young defenders in the game but if you want something of value, you have to give something of value.

If I were a GM and looking to trade either Suter or Weber, I'd get at least an 80+ point a year player in return. Someone along the likes of Perry or Parise would be more of what we'd really be looking for. As good as Koivu has been, he's not the goal scorer that we need, he's more of a setup guy although he does score some too. Perry or Parise are gonna put up 30-40 goals a year and are gritty players.
