He was never terrible. He had some ups and downs but JM never had any patience with him and would rather play veterans. With young players you have to be patient with them, PK this year is an example, Emelin also(though we are breaking in too many kids right now).

I don't think OB should have necessarily played every game but he should have played 75-80% of games and not benched for full games as soon as he made a mistake. I think he was perfectly suited for a #4-5-6 big/mean stay at home role.

Now maybe I'm wrong but I could have sworn we were bigger
Koivu is about 5'9" but listed at 5'10".
