2006 Fun Is Over, but 2007 Is Under A Year Away (Pt. 1)

Almost two months have come and gone since we all got our little dash of summer excitement from the 2006 free agent season.

Koivu Optimistic About Return!

According to Saku Koivu has been training hard the upcoming season and is optimistic that he will be ready for training camp. The Montreal Canadiens captain has been skating regularly now for the last three weeks after recovering from surgery to repair a torn retina in his left eye. While things have been going well on the ice, Koivu acknowledges there is always the possibility of suffering further injury to his eye. “When I look in a straight line, everything is fine,” he tells La Presse. “But when I look side-to-side… it’s a bit of a problem.” Koivu was struck in the eye by an errant high stick from Justin Williams during Game 3 of the Habs first round playoff series against Carolina. Hopefully he will be ready to start the season and lead the Habs to a playoff berth and possibly a Stanley Cup Championship!:)
