But, since our centers do not produce much, Koivu takes a lot of heat for not tearing it up. Again, Koivu is a good player, but he would be great with a point scoring 2nd Center. Like a 1A/1B kind of situation where someone would compliment his two way game with pure offense.

I don't know if any of this makes sense, I need to go to bed.
I understand what you're saying but for me, it's about production vs cost vs what else he provides. He's taking a lot of heat from me because we built this team around him and it is looking more and more like a square peg/round hole situation.
