I’ve bitched about Koivu a few times in the past, I’m disappointed that the guy with the most points on the team doesn’t even show up in the top 30 of the league but Saku’s been on a tear this month, he’s now in the top 30 and on pace for his best season ever points and goals wise.
More importantly, he’s scored pairs of goals in a couple of games where the habs weren’t doing well, stepping up and leading as a captain should do. According to all reports everything’s going well for the team off the ice and he’s playing a big part in that. So in the interest of fairness, I’m happy to say that I’m not bitching about him now and I’m impressed with him this season.
And with Carbo’s work, and Higgins and Huet and Souray and Latendresse and Lapierre and Streit. Now if only Kovalev could start feeling excited and motivated like he does in the playoffs, it would be even more fun.
