He is one of my inspirations in my personal battle with cancer.

Go Koivu Go Habs!
I calculated this last night, and if Koivu were to have played every game by the Habs since joining them, he'd have 800 pts right now.

...and countless more points because of this.

I was checking stats last night for the heck of it. He's also now 25th on goals scored in the Habs history, his 185th goal (last one) having passed Vincent Damphousse (184) on the list. He's currently 6th in the history of the team in the assist column with 438 and closing in on Jacques Lemaire(469) for 5th all time. He's also 27 PIMs away from cracking the top-25 on the team also

I want to see #11 hanging in the rafters of the Bell Centre one day. The guy deserves it, and doesn't get nearly enough credit for his accomplishments...

Congrats to Saku! I'll always be a fan of this guy. Just a warrior, even after all of his injuries and sickness.
I never understood the flak he gets from some people.

I was at the game where he got his 500th and I actually was able to get him to sign that ticket. I have it framed up on the wall now. It was January 2007.

Awesome stuff. That poke check was a thing of beauty. Love to see the captain out there leading by example last night.

Would be a total shame. Love the dude, he is the heart of the team and I don't care what some of the media says.

Only if he can help bring a cup here before he retires.

Always happens, people say he is too old, washed up, injury prone, and the guy just proves his doubters wrong every year. He is my favorite Hab bar none, maybe even all time. Go Sak Go!!

He's really strong in 5-3 situations against the Habs, I don't think the other team has scored at all this year with him on the ice to defend a 5-3, that's pretty impressive since he must have been in at 7-8 of them I think, same thing last year, he must be one of the best in the league for that.

saku pokechecked and didn't hook, I don't even see anything close to a penalty on that play? Are you aware that there can't be a tripping call when you actually pokecheck the puck before tripping a player??? If you try to pokecheck and miss the puck and trip the player, than yes, there should be a tripping call, but if you touch the puck before the trip, its a no-call.



Either you need to learn hockey 101 or you're trying to veal your true nature with a well placed "way to go Saku"?

That's because the media isn't that interested, he needs some juicy rumors of a drug habbit while partying with underage hookers after hitting someone with his car and fleeing the scene.

Calm down. My true nature? Why are people always so eager to project bogus agendas on other people? If you had read anything I posted before you'd know that I'm a huge supporter of Saku. Don't be such an ass.

As for the play, it was a great one, but he clearly gave another wack of his stick after the poke check and tripped the opposing player.

But, you know, I did skip a lot of my hockey 101 courses, the class was a monday morning and all...

Yup, Koivu is now 10th on the Habs all-time list.

He managed to intercept a pass on a 5-3 and poke check the puck all the way to Pleky for the GWG, but they want to talk about the reff not doing his job.

I love it, they hide behind the cloak of impartiality to bash Koivu. Oh it's not that we don't want to acknowledge koivu it's that you know he should have gotten a penalty.

Sorry, but did you ever play hockey? He passed the puck lying on the ice, when the stick was going towards Plekanec on the pass, it was in the air, it is highly natural that the stick comes back to the original position, as it was the position with the least gravitational force. Try keeping your elbow straight with a hockey stick in only one hand, and try holding it like that in the air, perpendicular to your body for a while, you will see that the stick becomes heavy. The only reason the stick went back to its original position was because of that, and any referee knows its part of a follow-thru for this type of move. Also the Nucks player was also battling for the same puck, the same rule applies, the player that pokechecks the puck won't get penalized if in the same stick movement he tripped a player, and it was without a doubt the same stick movement, as it was just the bounce back from the original wack. There was NO penalty that should've been called on that play, and yeah you do indeed need hockey 101. Also, since Koivu had just touched the puck, the Nucks player knew full well that Koivu's stick was there, and if you look at the video, he also looks like he took a dive, but since it is the consequence of a pokecheck ON THE PUCK, no penalty, whether to the Habs or the Nucks would be called.

Those lugnuts on the radio who were talking about a penalty on that play know nothing about hockey and are as always trying to bring down any achievements made by the captain, so don't take offense when people can doubt your intentions because you mention the same non-sensical thing as they did.
