Minnesota has struggled to find a center since Lemaire was standing behind the bench. Remember Demitra being forced into the center position.

The biggest problem with Koivu is his durability.
True, he's had a bad year with injuries. But it's not a reason to move him. He's not pulling a Butch, Lats, or a Gabby. He's not out of shape.

Not to bring Cullen up again, but I was looking at the numbers. These aren't up to date from the last few games, but he's played many more games than Koivu....yet with the exception of having maybe 1 more goal, he is below in all other regards. And it's pretty amazing how Koivu and Heatley are so high above the rest in +/-. Yeah, they're on the powerplay a lot, but Cullen was a -3 as of February 8th. Where the #@$! did he go?!
