How? Recchi was a 1st liner on the Habs for half a season before Koivu even broke the NHL squad, and even then they didn't play with each other (lower in the depth chart than both Turgeon and Damphousse, obviously). Then Saku has two years battling a wide variety of leg injuries, and then they finally get to spend some "real" time together the year Damphousse is moved and Koivu named captain, but... Recchi gets traded to the Flyers at the deadline. I'm pretty sure that's how it played out (in a nutshell).
I really don't understand where we even got a good look at this one possible example.
