kinot-1 Posted September 11, 2014 Report Share Posted September 11, 2014 His accomplishments are well known. My suggestion would be in the Ring Of Honour. He played 14 years here, with ten of those as captain. He tied the great Jean Belivieu for longest tenure as captain. He created the Saku Koivu Foundation in collaboration with the MGH Foundation as his way to “give back” to the community in appreciation for the excellent medical and nursing care he received during his battle with cancer. He was the first European captain of the Habs. He never put up great numbers, the most being 75, but he never took a day or shift off either. In my view, he was one of the top three classiest captains in Habs history I remember the press saying when he was drafted, that he was the best player in the world not playing in the NHL. If anyone has any doubts as how much Saku was loved in Montreal, you need only to watch this clip, as he was named 3rd star of his last game in Montreal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zxp8J0kd2is Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
