Would you do Arnott for Koivu straight up?

Get use to it because with Koivu Habs will never win over Sundin and his friends (Nieuwendik, Roberts).
Juneau is there to check Sundin but Koivu is there to score. He failed last night. Now for the next two months we separate the mens from the kids. This is the “hard” season that starts. We'll see what Koivu is made of. Last year after the All-Star game Koivu was a non-factor. I think he have to get some post-cancer test and it affects his energy. I don't know what these test are but he came back slow and down. Let's see what will happen this year.
And the #2 center"Stickboy Riberio "was totaly DOMINATED by every Leaf that came in contact with him.
He is useless when any team decides to check him.
That is a Bigger worry than Koivu having a crappy night.
Last nights game is the kind of game you will see in the playoffs,lots of close contact and Riberio FAILED miserably.
Riberio will NEVER lead this team to anything either ,just as Koivu will not. :mad: :mad:
