Gomez, Gionta, Cammalleri, Markov, Plekanec... of course they all have/had qualities, but they just don't care as much... Koivu was facing cameras day in and day out, even when playing with Brian "October" Savage and Martin Rucinsky as our 1st line, with Yannick Perreault as 2nd line C and Joe "6 goals/year" as 3rd liner...

I loved Koivu. No, he does not deserve his jersey to be retired. But he should have retired here. I want him back.
the comments about Koivu playing with Savage and co fits pretty much the name in bold, there isnt a winger Plekanec didnt play with, that includes guys like Moen and Darche... and I have yet to see/hear him complain about anything...
