I would be willing to bet my left leg that Koivu will not be traded any time soon. It wouldn't make sense on any front, and would contradict what Gainey's direction seems to be.
I don't think Koivu's injury history is overstated at all. He has not played very many games at his best, let's face it. It's not his fault, of course.
I can't see how they would ever trade the guy either. He's the heart and soul of the team and a highly talented, bargain basement stud. We need to add players without subtracting Saku. Trading Saku for someone else doesn't gain us anything at all.
