He's also learned the defensive side of the game, he's added strong positionning to his game. I think this is for the better as he generally tends to get tired towards the end of the year. Having a rested and healthy Koivu for the playoffs is better, as he excels during the post-season.
I agree with you . Saku is intelligent and he 's adapting his game with his health condition . But i find that his energy is falling very fast this season , compare to last season . May be it's just the fact that Higgins is so fast that Saku looks sometime slow or tire !
