Just talked on the phone with one of the colleagues. He says he knows exactly which house it is from this info. He says its an amazing property, including the fence

That's killing me to see that some people get 3-4 M$ house . What does that give to have 60 rooms when you are 2-3 persons to live there ?

Sorry people if i am annoying you with my thoughts , but when you think about it , 3-4 m$ investement into drinkable water reserves in Afrika villages , could save how many lifes ?

So now it's his house. What else can we expect you to add to your anti-Koivu diatribes in the future?

Heartless as it may sound, I wouldn't contribute to your African potable water fund if I had a spare million or so because I'm almost certain that the money would end up in the pockets of corrupt politicians.

TSN Rating, re: Koivu

Interesting to see what they think of Koivu


After the 02-03 season [0.87 PPG] they had him listed as "Franchise Center"

After 03-04 [0.81 PPG] they had him as "First line center"

now after the 05-06 season [0.86 PPG] they have him as "Second line center", and added this line to his flaws: "while his small stature limits his effectiveness."


I know this does not affect anything whatsoever, but it is interesting to see how people seem to be perceiving Koivu lately, even with 23 points in his last 26 playoff games

I would be shocked if they gave him any credit whatsoever.

It is just some writer's opinion.

To say Koivu a franchise center was wrong, but second line center is even more wrong.

Yeah, I saw that. Apparantly getting stabbed in the eye makes you a weaker player.

even more wrong than franchise center? the guy has 2 seasons over 60pts in 10 years... yes he was injured, yes he's a good player, but he's more like a second line center than even being close to be a franchise player. people here have to stop overrating our players...

Wait a few days so we see how he does in pre-season...but so far, he looks pretty much the same as he did before the injury in scrimmages.

Well, since it's impossible to name 30 centres beter than him then he is, by definition, a first line centre.

Or that with all those teams , the hochey is diluted , so that many teams don't even have a true first center .

Its easily possible, in fact I know at least 6 teams with 2 centers superior to Koivu anyday.

Ottawa
Pittsburgh
Detroit
San Jose
Carolina
Tamba Bay

I agree Koivu is a 2nd center, he always was, will always be. He does become a 1st line center quality in the playoff since he can elevate his game.

Did you ever see Koivu play the first half of the 95 96 season??
Give me a break!

But at least you agree he is 1st line in the playoffs.
IMO I would rather have Koivu in the playoffs over Joe Thornton!

Is this where the "Latendresse is better than Perezhogin" school of thought comes from?

All I was saying was
1. Koivu is a first line centre.
2. I hope he can stay healthy for the next few years because he has had such terrible injury troubles almost his entire career.

Sorry my post was so confusing!

Teufelkist , most of the first liners players of the NHL are probably having same kind of house(s) as Koivu . You can say the same thing about star singers , musiciens , movie actors and a bunch of businessmen .

Work on you imagination a bit ; My post wasn't about Koivu , but a general comment about the crazy human nature, that let thoulsans peoples dying when others spend their money to get useless things like 60 rooms houses , ...

About the potable water fund , you need to work on you imagination again ...
