Koivu is, in fact, a first line centreman on most teams in the league, mr. mark0v. Off of the top of my head, here are the centreman who are more skilled, commited, and creative than Koivu.

-Fedorov
-Thornton
-Sakic
-Forsberg
-Modano
-Allison
-Lemieux
-Sundin

Here are the centreman I would consider to be on par, or in some cases a step behind Koivu.

-O'Neill
-Comrie
-Jokinen
-Datsyuk
-Elias
-Yashin
-Roenick
-Lecavalier
-Richards
-Morrison
-Lang

There are not sixty, or even twenty centreman there. Koivu is in an elite area of centreman within the league. Until he does something worthy of these heartless, baseless claims directed at him by -110%, he is the man in Montreal.
