Guest jzun00 Posted November 8, 2006 Report Share Posted November 8, 2006 NHL.com ranked the top 10 captains of this year and Saku came in fourth, only behind J. Iginla, J. Sackic, and R. Brindamour. Here is what they said: "4. Saku Koivu -- Montreal -- Like Sundin, Koivu has the expectations of a passionate and knowledgeable fan base to live up to in Montreal. If possible, Koivu actually has more stress placed upon him than even Sundin. Yet this unflappable Finn has handled the position with nothing but grace since assuming the head role in 1999. This is a man that has quietly returned from cancer and a near career-ending eye injury since becoming captain. His courage, it seems, knows no limits and makes him ideal to continue his franchise’s proud legacy of elite leaders.
