To expand on what a couple other posters said, What did you expect Koivu to say??
Koivu when asked about a certain player, is going to come out and say something positive. His comment was made to praise Latendresse, not as a message to managment in any way. I'm sure he is impressed with Latendresse's play and no matter what management decides (keep Latendresse up, or send him to junior), Koivu will back management's decision, 100%, like a good captain should.
But he raised a point we've never heard from anyone in the orginization... Gui can't learn anymore from the Q. He's a man among boys down there and half the time plays uninterested. He hasn't looked out of place in the pre-season for a single game...
