I'm in Toronto - The media here is even more out of touch with the Habs than the Montréal media (not surprisingly). I don't think the media is being dishonest, Koivu's status is simply not set in stone. This TSN article sums it up: TSN Link His knee is not 100% so he and the medical staff decided he should sit out for a few more games. No distraction - just frustration for Koivu and the fans.

BTW: Le Petit Tigre is Michel Bergeron's nick name (former Nord coach "and chief scum bag" - to borrow a line from Slap Shot).
