I loved Koivu too. But they had an opportunity for a fresh start at went with it. New leadership, new core, new look. You don't get a new girlfriend and go hanging out with all of her and your new friends... and bring your old girlfriend along to sit in the corner byherself, do you?

It almost kinda sorted maybe worked for a bit. Injuries and other problems led to it crumbling away. If Markov were healthy in the playoffs against the Flyers maybe we move on to the cup finals and Gainey is called a genius today. Cole was probably the other missing piece that was added a year too late. Now that core is weeding its way out as young players develop. Gauthier will try hard to use Cammalleri and Gomez's dollars on something new. It appears this time he'll be looking for size and skill together. We'll see if he gets the opportunity to fish another free agent market, he may not.
