Common, don't be intellectually dishonest after your tanking thread there. Koivu spent a couple of years in Finland and was developped by the TPS Turku organization and came to NA when he felt he could go straight to the NHL. The Canadiens simply reaped the benefits. For all the other prospects who had to pass through the process of playing with the Canadiens' AHL team, the experience was much different. You can read the interview given by one of our 1st round picks (Terry ?) to see what was going on during those years post-draft for the prospects chosen by Montreal.
