That being said, Koivu the player was always, always doing his best on the ice.
This I think is the cause of the complete media lock-down that the current organization operates under. They were moving in that direction anyway under Gainey but I think they reached a tipping point around the "darkest day in Habs history" media cluster**** and decided to no longer fed the beast. If people don't like how Gauthier doesn't fill them in on what's going on I think this is why.

Imagine the media storm if they came out and said they were pursuing Jagr like many outside reports say.

Gionta, Gill and Markov as the captain and alternate captains seems like a much more professional leadership group than previous. Koivu was always professional but Kovalev and Higgins weren't.
