...That tiny Koivu is somehow capable of playing in front of the net, screening the goalie and taking slapshots to the head, while NONE of the big bodies on this team are able to do the same thing.

Latendresse does it very well but he is never used on the PP.

Latendresse does it sporatically which is why he isn't used on the PP.

He'll do it for 20 seconds and then go behind the net to set up some sweet playz.

Jimmy Kost hangs out more in the slot than in front of the net.

That means we have big logs of men with no killer instincts. I have yet seen a player for us be able to get dirty in front of the net other than Saku.

Koivu has no heart! He is an egotistical player! All he ever does is just to boost up his credits in the eyes of the fans. He's never ever ever ever done anything good for a great city like Montreal. He won't even learn french. Koivu has no heart

Begin was the real captain!

Me and the old man are always screaming at the TV. "Why the hell is saku the only guy that stands in front of the net." The guy must have a lot of welts, maybe not as many as the forwards legs that stand in between the net and komi's slapshot, but a lot.

It's frustrating that Koivu is the only guy who continually goes out of his damn way to do the job of the 'big guy' infront of and around the net. You'd think, given all his body has been through, maybe he wouldn't. But Saku is one ballsy, little, tough mother---.

Begin was French too!

I could seriously take that French thing and make a really nasty joke, but I shant.

We see this thread a bunch of times every year, and it is always right. Koivu is our one skilled guy that is actually not afraid to go to the dirty areas. Its been like that forever.

i think the difference is Koivu goes to the front and battles, whereas a lot of the other players just let themselves get pushed around and what not. Koivu is constantly trying to get position and make it hard for the their D.
