Koivu vs. Sundin

This matchup just doesn't work. Both are great playerrs but when Koivu is matched against Sundin, Mat eats his lunch. It seems to happen regularly... or is it just me?

Sundin absolutely dominates down low. He is impossible to move off the puck in the corners or behind the net. If Komo has trouble doing it then it is really unfair to ask Koivu to do the same job.

Both Sundin and Koivu play better with the puck than without it. Montreal needs a guy that plays well without the puck to work against Sundin... and it has to be someone who is big and strong.
