What do you think of him now?
Over the past several months I have read a ridiculously number of posts that suggest Saku should go – you should all give your collect heads a shake. He is, without a doubt, the habs best player…it is not even close. Tonight he was absolutely exceptional. He works his ass off, makes things happen, plays with emotion, and has loads of TALENT!! Not to mention he actually WANTS TO PLAY IN MONTREAL (so have some damn respect and try not drive the talent out of town that in fact wants to wear the CH).
All of you who think that his time has come to move on are out of your minds. He has played his entire career on a Montreal team that puts little to no emphasis on offense and thus has been jammed into one stifling defense system after another; and guess what: HE HAS NEVER WHINED ABOUT IT!! How refreshing. Can you imagine the career and cups he would have had playing for a Detriot or Colorado like team. I know that he has had his injuries and that has been a problem but come on, he has heart, which is more than I can say for a good portion of that team. So, Koivu detractors, MOVE ON and find another, far more worthy scape goat. GO HABS!
