This is in the article on TSN about Koivu's eye improving... it confirms that Saks didn't want his picture taken...
"Koivu spent an eventful two nights at Montreal General Hospital after the high stick, which included what the team said was an unwelcome visit by a reporter and photographer from Le Journal de Montreal.
"A team spokesman said players and management were upset that the journalists eluded hospital security to get a picture and short interview with Koivu.
"A picture of Koivu with his swollen and stitched left eye closed shut appeared on the newspaper's front page on April 28. Koivu appears to be trying to shield his eye from the camera with his hand in the photo."
Like all of us I was really concerned to know how he is doing, but it's disgusting to invade the guy's privacy to get a shot and publish it. The Journal should be ashamed.
