I don't think people here were that critical of him.
Tons of Habs fans wanted to chase Koivu out of town for the sin of being under 6' tall. Much of the same things we hear about Plekanec and Desharnais now I heard about Koivu. I'm sure if the internet exsited in the 80's HIO commentators would have been calling for the Habs to trade that smurf Naslund for yet another enforcer.

Get real. Stop being obnoxious. This team still has a lot to prove. And we clearly don't have the best recipe as of now. If you think we do, you're the most overreacting, obnoxious and overproud fan I've ever seen.
The team should be looking to improve. Every team should be looking to improve, but there's no magic formula despite a vocal minority of posters here acting like the Bruins are the only relevant team. We should be looking for upgrades in every position, but size and fighting ability are just one factor, and the last thing we need is to overpay just so fans don't have to feel bad that their team are called smurfs by Bruins fans.
