Not with Kovy, but maybe with Koivu? I don't know, Gainey was in a tough spot. Koivu was getting old, but there weren't (there never are) many top centers available, and the Habs didn't really have any center prospects at the time (Chipchura doesn't count). But, although his play was gradually declining, I don't think Koivu was as responsible for the team's failings as many claim.
