Saku has always been my hero, and I am ashamed to say when he first got injured I thought we would get along fine without him, but...man was I wrong. So glad he's a Hab

This sure puts the miserable losers who said Kovalev should get the C in their place. You know who you are.

The Habs will never win without Koivu or a similar type veteran with a history within the organization. He's our Brind'Amour, our Sakic, our Yzerman, our Modano, you get the idea. Not always the best player on the ice, altought he can do it on a regular basis too, but probably the most important to the team's performance and cohesion. I love Saku as much as the next guy. His legions of fanboys, a little less.

People can say what they want about Saku but they cant denied that the guy has tremendous character, heart, dedication, work ethic and will. This quote from Saku is showing that he really thinks this year might be the year even with a young line up.

So we can forget about this team slacking off or sleepwalk through this series. No offense to Kovy, who i really like, but he will never be able to lead this team to a championship as our captain. Watching Koivu go at it last saturday was incredible to see. Saku doesnt have lot of good years left so get ready to see something special these upcomin weeks.

He can't do it on his own, so team, please make this year, the year for Koviu.

The man has been through so much, he deserves one. Even if he doesn't win one, they should just put his name on the cup anyways.

I love Koivu more than Tender Willie loves his therma blades. More than Carbonneau loves the magic tie. More than Kirk Muller loves his little black book. More than Theodore loves his Propecia. More than Pierre Dagenais loves his Dr. Seuss books.

A weeks ago while waiting for the elevator I overheard the goof who runs the snack bar at 1425 Dorchester putting Koivu down. I had to take a few minutes out to school the guy.

It would only be fitting for Koivu, after all he went through, to be the first European captain to raise the Stanley Cup.

It would only be justice.

It would be great to see Koivu carry the Cup around the ice but it would be a miracle for the Habs to win three more rounds even with him playing. Let's say the Habs get past the Flyers, which they have a good chance of doing. The Penguins or Rangers would be tougher, and then the Habs would have to meet Detroit, San Jose, or Dallas. This might not be the year. But if the Habs reinforce themselves next season they'd have a better chance. I look forward to seeing a more experienced O'Byrne, the addition of Pacioretty, and just one more good free agent.

When everybody in out team play up to their potential and Carey Price continue to be solid in the net, we can beat anybody. To win the Cup, we do need some luck too (like in 93). Keep your hope up and we can still dream for the Cup this year.

Heh, then he could have said anything. I mean, ever try to do that in Babelfish?

Koivu always amazes in playoffs or when playing for team Finland. He always lifts up his game when the need is biggest. Great player, great character. Last year it was other great Finn who got chance to lift the cup, hopefully this year other great Finn will do the same.

Koivu has been phenomenal in these few games he has played in playoffs. Comes back from injury to crucial phase of the serie and is one of the biggest reasons Montreal made it against Boston. And what about hie faceoff % in these games, 68, thats pretty high. It's always easier for the team to get the puck from the faceoff than trying to get it back after losing it at a faceoff.

Koivu in playoffs: 46 games 13 goals and 27 assists (40 points). Not bad for a midget who is always injured and should have been traded away a long time go, not to speak the "C" in his chest
