Second, take a look at the 29 other NHL teams.. not one come close to compare to the buch of wingers the Sens have... Not one come close to compare to the bunch of skilled defensemans they have.. Would you want I give you the names of the wingers Koivu played with during his NHL playoffs carreer? Anyone knowing the game a bit know Koivu always played extremmely great in playoffs whatever his numbers are, he always competed hard even with a mediocre overall team most of the time... In fact, the better winger he played with was Kovalev back to the 2002 playoffs and they were just amazing, they were quite dominating everytime they touched the ice.. We lost to the Lightnings cause we had no depth and 1 offensive line. You comparison between Spezza and Koivu is brutal, replace Spezza by Koivu and the Sens probably already won a Stanley cup, replace Koivu by Spezza and the guy cracked at some point under pressure and is no longer a Habs. At the moment Spezza has basically no pressure, Ottawa is a paradise for a guy like him. MTL an inferno! We are building our team with way better than Spezza, we are building with skilled kids that love to perform under pressure!
are you still OK ?
