Saku Koivu to Montreal!

Habs miss Saku. Me too.

I think it could be done. What would it take?

I'd love him back. But We got Plekanec, Eller and Desharnais... hard to make some place for Koivu, sadly.

I'd offer Plekanec, Weber for Koivu, Smith-Pelly, Rakell and a 3rd. Quality for quantity but lets the Habs move forward. Koivu would be for leadership, while Anaheim gets a long term 1b/elite #2 center. Weber is a throw in basically since Habs have too many D, and have a lot more coming up in the next few years.

I doubt the Habs trade a #2 centre for that.

No deal, rather keep Smith-Pelly and Rakell, even if Plekanec would be coming back.

I doubt Koivu would ever want to go back to Montreal. They essentially kicked him to the curb and Anaheim was fortunate enough to pick him up. Letting Koivu go will hurt Montreal for years to come. I bet if the Habs had kept Koivu, PK would actually play with character and respect towards the opposition.

Both parties wanted to move on. It wasn't just a thanks for nothing Saku, go to hell. Being captain in Montreal during the longest stretch without a cup in franchise history is hard. Now the media eases up on the captain, and if Saku returned he would not be captain. Your post is trolling anyhow. The only thing you meant to do was take a shot at Subban.

It was ridicilous move from Canadiens to even kick him out and it would be the same if Saku would go back. Hardest working and biggest heart in NHL and what the newspapers in Finland are saying he is happy in Ducks and is BB's favorite player.

As a Habs fan, no offence taken at all. I hope Saku is moved to a contender as well. He deserves to win a cup! One of the classiest guys in the NHL

I wouldn't be surprised to see Koivu resigned in Anaheim. He seems to like it here, and he has had chemistry with Ryan in the past, so it would give time for Holland to develop.

i really think (not just for obvious reasons) that it would fall on koivu himself....right now the ducks are in a weird spot for next year and if he wants to stick around next year im sure BM would love to have him but there is a lot of money come off the books for the ducks and a few directions they can go....they have no one commited to playing next season on the 2nd line and if koivu has told BM he is not going to be here next year than im sure he would get him back to MTL (which is a good thing so he can retire a hab even though i really like koivu) and if he told BM he wants to play here next year that it might be tough for BM to move him just because of our current situation

the ducks truely are in a weird spot as its unlikely they get into the playoffs but they are pushing right now and IMO BM cant mess with that, but there is still around a month before the deadline so ANYTHING can happen...FEB. is going to be a very important month for the ducks and who will be on the market..

Don't want another smurf, he has slowed down to much, brings very little anymore.
Watch the video of his last play with the habs to see what i'm talking about.
Thanks for the so so years
Why go backwards ???????????

When he decides to retire, Montreal picks him so he can dress one game and retire a Habs.

Well pretty much everything you said is 100% untrue. Who cares about his last play with the Habs 2 years ago, hes been good in Anaheim.

Makes no sense for Montreal to get a rental though, theyre going nowhere.
