As for him not being a vocal guy in the locker room, that couldn't be any further from the truth.

Much like every other time this "discussion" has come up, it still continues to be absurd.
Correct. Koivu is our guy. Whether some fans like or not he will wear the C unless he gets traded. I really don't for see a Patrick Marleau situation happening. Koivu is a leader on the ice and is a player that does everything a captain should do. He plays in all 3 zones, is our #1 in every situation, and just flat out leads by example. I understand the frustration that Koivu is hurt, but you can't put that on him. Similar to Latendress. You can't blame him for a concussion. There is nothing that he can do short of faking a doctors clear to play and hurting himself even worse.
