And what did we win with Koivu? And I have no idea how we can know who was a team player and who wasn't. Unless we are players ourselves and know from the inside that they were or weren't. There were a lot of reports from ex-players that Koivu wasn't the guy who tried continuously to get the guys together. He needed a lot of help from his assistants on that department. Or so we hear. What Koivu had on Yashin was indeed better record in the playoffs. And a type of player that was continuously working his butt off. While Yashin could sometimes be more quiet though we are absolutley not talkinga bout the same type of player.
