(Edit* He seems like he has handled stress like I used to...you get angry, evasive, and tend to blame other things. It isn't the right way to go about things.)

Again, only my opinion, but I guess the biggest thing I take away from Koivu being the captain, is that I've never felt he has been a key point in the Wild breaking out of a slump, or "righting the ship." He's just...been there. Perhaps having other veteran leadership-type guys will help out.
You should check how this team plays without Koivu and with Koivu. The difference is amazing.
