''We are thrilled to bring back Saku to the team where he will have the chance to finish his career where he belongs. Saku will play a depht role on the team likely to start at center on the 4th line and might sit out a few games for rest but he will be a key leader for us and hopefully help us make a strong push in the playoffs.''
Saku Koivu comment:
''I can't really explain how I feel right now, I could'nt have ask for a better opportunity to finish my career. I know what role I will play on the team and I accept it and will do everything in my power to help the team on and off the ice.''
Yes those were easy negociation.
