We'd have 3 scoring threats (4 if you count that Juneau-Dackell-Bulis is causing trouble for opposition late in games) and lines with size, defense and offensive potential!
If we falter, then change things up. Until then let the team play as a team, Koivu included.
I've been in Montreal for most of my life and I have heard and read alot of crap over the year, but this Koivu situation ranks up there as the foulest. The team has been winning because of the system put in place and Theo. Everyone, including the Koivu-basher say that he is the Habs best forward. So if he is ready, you treat him like your best player and you give him the ice time you reserve for your best.
