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.
He's one of the most passionate players I've ever seen.
Stripping him of the letter would change nothing. Absolutely nothing. He'd still lead the team, it is his after all.
