He plays with heart,
gets along with his teammates,
gets Rewarded by management for hard work
Fans love him
Down to earth guy, Following since he's ben drafted,
We used him at the place of koivu last playoff after koivu injury, and he played very good.
In short, he's exactly as what we see in Koivu today, only difference he came 10 years later!!
You know... I draw the same comparisons as you for the simple reason that they seem to play a similar game. But at the same time, despite Koivu's underachievement offensivley, I still think that koivu has more offensive flair than plekanec. Another thing that sets them apart is leadership. I don't know what kind of leadership plekanec has, but Im pretty certain koivu is vastly superior to him at that level.
