Guest habs_fan1160 Posted October 19, 2007 Report Share Posted October 19, 2007 I'm one of his fans. What I meant was, for him, it won't make too much difference between being 7th all-time in points or 4th. And as far as his fans go, he's 7th all-time now, and I doubt he will gain zillions more fans just because he moves up a notch or two in Habs all-time stats, or lose them if he doesn't. But, if he should happen to win the Cup, those are the things that matter and the memories that last. Imagine the stories the '93 Cup team gets to live with the rest of their lives.....the ten straight overtime victories......beating Gretzky in his last Stanley Cup appearance......etc. That sure tops "hey, I'm fifth all-time point-getter for the Canadiens during that span of fourteen years where we only went to the playoffs a few times and always got knocked out early." Lol, true. But the same thing could be said about Sundin, he'll never win a cup with the Leafs (safe to say), he'll always be remembered. Sure Sundin is a better all around player than Koivu, he has more points etc., etc., but like how Sundin will always be remembered with the Leafs, Koivu will be with the Habs. Now it would make it so much sweeter if he could hoist the cup with the Habs, but as of lately, I really don't see that happening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
