Koivu, god bless him, is about average as second line centers go. Realistically, you can expect about 55 or 60 points from him if (and it's a big "if") he plays 75+ games.

Even if we get in and then go out in the first round, I would not be opposed to letting him finish his career elsewhere, and turn the page.

Needless to say, I don't think the original post is premature. We can talk about anything we want, when we want, so long as it's habs-related and does not constitute a slur against the Russians, Chechens, Tartars, French, Quebecois, Swiss, the Jews, Muslims or the Irish. Koivu may be the heart of the team, but the team has had an irregular heartbeat for too long.
