problem with Montreal is that he'd be slotted in as 4th line C, unless he shifted to the wing... and given Pleks-DD-Eller are the 3 centers that would be ahead of him on the depth chart, he's not a good "fit" to complement them as our 4th line C.

If we did happen to make some major move that saw one of the incumbent 3 C's shipped away, Koivu coming in as our 3rd line C would not be a bad option... not the physically imposing type of player we could use down the middle, but nevertheless would be a decent short-term option.
