I think it was the play when Zednik scored and we beat the Bruins in game 7?

epic

Hope the length of the standing the fans at the Bell give him tonight will be longer than the one he got when he came back from cancer.

I'm voting him to first star no matter what so he can hopefully take one final lap around the ice.

I still have hope that he will end his career in MTL.

This will be a fun game to watch, Ducks are a good team ,I hope the Habs are ready for tough battle

welcome home saku, welcome home...
just hasent been the same without you.

I'm a habs fan through and through but am i the only one thats not able to identify with them as much since saku left?

i'm old enough to have seen a cup and other captains so it's not like he's the only one i've known, but i duno it just this team doesnt seem to have as much passion without him...like somethings missing...

anyhoo hope saku has a great game but that the habs have a better one

I think it will be much easier once another Habs developed guy steps as Captain like Subban. I always felt like this was Saku's team, I don't feel like this is Gionta's team. I don't even call Gionta by his first name like I do Carey or P.K. Although I guess it helps those two are the only people in the NHL with their name.

Really looking as if I'll be wrong on how Koivu will be welcomed....And I seriously hope to be wrong on that. And it looks like I will be.....let's hope it stays that way.

What's with you? Koivu will be welcomed as a hero, bank on it.

I really really thought there would be some wackos...still think there could be though, I believe the pro Koivu will cheer over them for once.

I'm wearing my Suomi jersey today. I've never been to Finland (really want to though) but I bought this jersey when Koivu was captain of Team Finland at the world cup.

Koivu will forever be my Captain and there won't ever be a Hab player I care about more than Saku Koivu. Ever.

He is the underdog story of the century for the habs, I must admit.

I loved Koivu to death as well, but there is a time to let things go.

This. And I'm still rather mad that we never got to see what could have been. My first memory of Saku is really from the Lillehammer Olympics. Of course I had heard of him before, but that was when I realized what a special player he was developing into.
