Clark was an absolute God amongst Leaf fans..........Koivu was beloved by many but had many critics in Montreal. Koivu wasn't nearly as popular as Clark was in Toronto. Clark reached a level of popularity that could only be rivalled by Keon, Sittler and later Gilmour in Toronto.......Koivu never approached that level of reverence from the Montreal fanbase.
