I don't know how he is in the locker room and can't hear him on the bench, so can't judge him on that. My only big knock on him is his speed. Be nice to see how the 1st line does without the other anchor(Heater). I'd like to see Koivu pressure more in the offensive zone. He hangs up high near the blue line too much. So when the wingers are battling for the puck in the corner, and the puck gers knocked to the other corner. Koivu is too far and too slow to help recover the puck.
