I was at the Canes/Habs game the other night. During the warmups I happened to look out at center ice and saw Justin Williams and Sako Koivu chatting at the center line. After a couple of moments, they both smiled and turned back to their respective warmups. This was obviously the first time they had faced each other since that horrible incident last spring during the playoffs when Koivu was accidently injured by JW. The meeting was obviously friendly and it made me feel good about the way JW and SK handled it. They seem to both be class guys. Considering that we gave up four goals, I was really glad Koivu got one of them. Good to see him back in form and hope things go well for him.

Thanks for the post. Nice to know they both dealt with it in a sensible manner. Being a big Saku fan, I'd love to see one of our players hammer Williams, just as long as its clean though. I wouldn't want the sport to have to deal with any more crazy instances of someone trying to gain revenge. Thanks for letting u know what happened, I hadn't heard anything about it (other than during the build-up to the game, Saku said his 'revenge' would be on the scoreboard for the playoff defeat, nothing else).
