He should be 5th and 10th respectively on those lists by the end of the season.

If Koivu was to win a cup in the near future with the Habs, do you guys think his number would be retired? He's coming up on the longest captain tenure for the club, is top 10 in points. It would be interesting.

Please, let's not discuss this before he wins the cup with the Habs...

Tanguay - Koivu - Tender line reminds me so much of Recchi - Koivu - Corson/Savage when he was leading the league in points! He's now 10th in points averaging less than 15 minutes per game

Imagine his point totals if he hadn't been injured and missed so many games. He'll finish his career 5th in assists and 10th in points, the next guys on the list are a bit out of reach.

I think a lot of people noticed Koivu looked 'tired' in quite a few games last season. Another reason why the Lang trade looks great right now. Takes the physical load of penalty killing off Koivu so he can be fresh to focus on offense.

What warms my heart the most is he will become our top european born player, over swede, even better.

Koivu playing his best hockey to start the season.

Who was the better Hab...Koivu or Naslund? To me...Mats all the way

Let me first say that I really love Koivu.

But as odd as it sounds, he is actually the weakest player on his line this year! Granted, he plays a more intelligent game than Latendresse no question. But his passes aren't what they used to be and sometimes (probably still because of his eye) he reacts in a bizzare fashion on some plays.

But who cares? This guy is a machine in the post season and I think it's well deserved that for the first time in his career, there's actually a better player than him on his line. His experience alone makes up for his reduced speed and small (very very very small) mental errors.

And anyway, he still wins draws and wears the C proudly. I hope he gets his best season this year, with the help of Tanguay and reduced iced time (which will save his energy for when it really matters, in June!!!! )

Koivu should be compared with Henri, not with the Rocket. When Saku's career with the habs is over, he'll be very far behind the Rocket's 544 goals.

I've said this before, more than once, but in that you've watched both of them, don't you think that they're very similar players ? In fact, very similar personalities ?

Yeah, really bad passes, no vision whatsoever... on both of those Tanguay goals there last night.

Yes, he isn't as fast as he once was. But he is still one heck of a center and has been carrying the load this season with Pleky and his line not clicking yet. I seriously can't believe people finding negative things to say about him right now.

But on a more positive note, I am as thrilled as you are about the fact that he finally has the quality winger he deserves.

I'm sorry, what?

He made some absolutely sick feeds so far this season.

All three players are playing well and the chemistry is pretty obvious. They make each other better.

Both were taciturn captains but the comparison stops there.

I've always thought that they both were prideful to a fault, in fact, pride was probably their chief motivator. You can't quite compare results as they played in different times with much different quality teams. I think they were both undersized C's, both fearless, neither particularly likes to talk a whole lot. Both better passers than shooters.

Both had brothers in the league who aren't half bad.

Nobody would pick him up.

Im not even joking. Who would pick up a 4.5 millions small center even if he could put up 70pts+.

I am speaking on the behave of Yvon Pedneault of course.

They are both extremely selfless players on the ice but very sefish off the ice. Both are incredibly, even absurdly, competitive.

Slighlty arrogant, difficult to approach.. not the "classic" captain mold.. but in fact they make good captains.

Even without the Cup, If Koivu finishes his career in Montreal, I'd like to see his number retired.

Imo, and I know 95% won't agree with me, but if Koivu wins a Cup in Montreal and finishes his career as a hab, I think he deserves to have his number retired MORE than Patrick Roy does. My opinion.
