I friggin love Koivu, my favorite player ever, I remember telling my grade 9 principal (who loved the Habs) about this Finnish player that was coming over next year, he never heard of him, anyway, I left that school the next year and my sister still went. Early into the hockey season the principal told her to tell me two words: Saku Koivu.
Saku is playing awesome hockey this season. With a little bit of luck he could easely have 10 extra points. I remember all those perfect feed to Ryder who couldn't finnish or that awesome save by Toivonen yesterday... Anyways, Saku = heart and soul of the habs.
Hooray for Saku! The 21st century embodiment of the Finnish national trait of 'sisu' (guts, persistence, never giving up).. He could be on the way to having one of his best seasons. Let's hope he stays healthy and we make a few heads turn in the playoffs.. that's what Saku really wants... to win. WINNNNNN damnit.
