Jack Bauer's tears cure cancer... too bad he never cries.... Oh wait, he did cry during episode 4 (season 6)... his tears must have trickled down to the underground waters, then made it all the way to Saku's tap, from LA to MTL.

Seriously, Saku is one of the toughest human beings I've witnessed around the world....of sports and entertainment.

Saku, your a hero, you ROCK.

They Ain't No Cure For Cancer

No one ever beats cancer, they just outlive it.

The long livers do this by a regimen of medicine, diet, rest, exercise, and luck.

Here you go:

Five years after being ravaged by an abdominal non-hodgkins lymphoma, Saku Koivu learned this week that he has officially beaten this illness.

“It’s obviously a big relief for me and my family,” the Canadiens’ Captain revealed on Friday, after having undergone a battery of tests on Monday. “It’s been a long battle for me and I’ve been waiting for this news for a long time. Cancer never really leaves you completely, it will always stay with me, but the biggest challenge is behind me.”

“The last few weeks you could see that he was very preoccupied,” remarked coach Guy Carbonneau. “I noticed it, but he never said a word, he never complained. This is extroardinary news that he’s received and it’s obvious that it will take a load off his shoulders.”

Carbonneau says he’s impressed by Koivu’s attitude, a tireless worker who was one of the “Tricolore’s” most consistent players this season.

“Much has been said about his character and leadership. This is another good example.”

Koivu underwent his most recent tests at the Montreal General Hospital thanks to the equipment that he himself helped acquire through his Foundation.

“I was very proud to walk in the hospital and see my name associated to this machine”, commented Koivu. (Note: it’s a PET/CT Scan machine, for early detection of cancer).

The Canadiens are back in action Saturday night when they visit the Toronto Maple Leafs. For Koivu, the next few weeks will be determining, as the team tries to establish itself among the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

“The next month will be quite a test. At this time of year, the teams that are battling in the bottom of the standings will work harder to climb up and it will be our job to push them back down. These games are full of emotion.”

Christobal Huet will be in nets for the Canadiens at the Air Canada Centre.

You might all think i'm crazy but if someone were to ask me which is the only player in the entire NHL that I would never trade for ANYONE, my answer would be Saku Koivu. I'd rather watch an unsuccessful Habs team WITH Saku than a winning one without him. Easily my favorite NHL'er of all time. I will cry the day he finally gets the hoist the cup, and THEN i'll celebrate the Habs winning it.
