Is it possible the team suspended him for something, but doesn't want the media blowback of suspending their captain?
Koivu finally found out how long his leash is after more or less running the team the past couple of years?

I dunno, but it sure would be a good thing to knock him down a notch and get him to be more in like with what Yeo wants for the team. I have to imagine he is the reason Yeo broke up the HBJ line the moment he came back on the ice.

I just have to wonder if Yeo and Fletcher are pampering him in order to get him to whisper sweet nothings into Granlunds ear on their behalf or something. If the Wild's treatment of Koivu suddenly changes once Granlund is finally signed it could say a lot about that situation. Grandlund not being signed has been nagging at me for a while lately, especially with the Wild sliding down further and further in the standings.
