i'm simply blown away.
okay, the Montreal Canadiens were taken out of the playoffs last night so this morning we get the injury reports from the team.
showing us why he's our fucking captain -- without anyone noticing a fucking thing, Saku Koivu played the last nine games with cracked ribs, torn cartilage and a bruised lung!!
with all the hard workd he put in, getting our team riled up, he was also tied for the lead in playoff scoring this year.
hats off to our fuckin captain.
oh god, this is just too much. it makes last night's loss thoroughly irrelevant now. seriously.
i was trying to find links to the Saku injury and i stumbled upon these two smile-inducing headlines (Canadiens fans, start smiling):
+ Kovalev would like to stay
+ Koivu Wants Kovalev to Return
Gainey would be crazy not to sign him. we got enough young players with cheap contracts, and some veterans on their way out this summer. Kovalev's expensive contract shouldn't be a problem. and if Koivu talked that way minutes after a devastating loss, i think Bob knows what to do. there's no doubt in my mind. he's one of the smartest GM's out there. he brought in Kovalev as a rent-a-player a few months ago but this turned out way better than anyone expected. the only thing that could come between Kovalev and Montreal would be Kovie wanting to play elsewhere. but i think Koivu's feelings and the way the team played, and how the fans reacted (finally) to him (fuck, as soon as he had the puck -after he started to score like crazy- the fans went mad and cheered him on. every fucking time. because they knew he had magic hands. man, the guy is a beauty to watch) it's only a matter of time. i hope Gainey signs him asap. (and don't worry, i'll post the news when he gets signed :)
