No one is saying that Koivu could have led that team to the playoffs but the fact is, he is a very picky player to play with and his style of leadership is not working with this team.
Koivu and Butch have played WELL together, almost every time they have been paired.

Koivu played great with Gabby when he was here.

Koivu and Parise ARE playing WELL together already. Many of Parise's goals are directly because of Koivu. See just the last one in Phoenix.

And yes, Koivu did play well with Mittens and Bruno. No one else certainly did, so I don't see how this is a strike against him.

Koivu played well with Gui.

Should I keep going or are you just trying to find fault where there is none.

Koivu is not the problem people. Yes he has off games from time to time, who the hell doesn't. I saw Parise even floating a little during that Phoenix game, **** happens, it doesn't mean anything at all most of the time.
