Good-Bye Saku

from Habs Inside/Out,

Canadiens fan Megan Martin, a Concordia University journalism student who is interning this summer as a City reporter at The Gazette, shares her thoughts at the departure of Canadiens captain Saku Koivu:

The state of team loyalty in sports is a far cry from the Canadiens’ glory days. But when a captain like Saku Koivu heads elsewhere, even my 92-year-old grandmother has a heavy heart.

Koivu’s reach as a member of the community extended far beyond those who bleed bleu, blanc et rouge.

Habs fan or not, the sense of loss that comes with Koivu’s departure is hard to swallow.
