Ah yes, the telephone game. Where did I say I want Koivu ran out of town? The fact is, he's the ideal SECOND LINE CENTER. I think this offseason we should be looking at getting another top 6 center simply because Granlund isn't it, we don't have one in Houston or in our prospect list.
Here's the thing; I don't want Koivu gone but I don't think he's done much as captain of the team. I rather have the team return to the rotating captaincy or simply remove it and have three assistant captains. I also think that a line of Bouchard - Koivu - Heatley as the second line would be ideal.
But I absolutely don't want Koivu gone. I just think that he's part of the problem in terms of leadership and passion. You can really see how this team is molded after him.
