Koivu spent 10 years (not 1 year) matching and often surpassing that production while playing with whatever garbage wingers Gainey would cook up for him.
Plekanec did much better when he had similarly good wingers.
Both Koivu and Plekanec achieved what they did on offense while also providing shutdown production.
44 assists. 20th rank in points by a center.
