''How often on these boards (or others) did you see someone say "it's time to trade Koivu because he's not a good captain" just because the media said so in a given article without any kind of proof or fact attached to it? Lots... Just speculation. "He looks like he's not happy"... "It seems he's not talking to x player enough"... etc. This is garbage journalism. While Pednault is far from the worst in this town, he just shows the preoccupations in the sports media world, which is to blatantly lead the viewer into beleiving x event is news & facts while it's nothing more than gossips & speculation.''

about Koivu and his leadership , may be you could considere that most of the journalists are following the team every weeks, so if you think that they don't know anything about what is going on in the players room , may be you have to open your eyes .
Players and reporters are talking together , but a player could tell something if it's done anonymously, so it could explain why they are not given '' any kind of proof '' about things...
