All I remember is that he was in the top 3 in league scoring and was averaging over a PPG in his second year in the league. He hasen't been able to regain that form since that injury.

I remember that season quite well too. I think we all thought he was going to burst out and be a star. I think Koivu is just another one of those players who never got to realize his huge potential because of injuries.
