Koivu Would Not Have Felt Comfortable In Minnesota

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

“It was an interesting choice,” said Koivu. “We spoke to Minnesota a few times. All the talks went well, but it was more for personal reasons that I didn’t feel comfortable ... I felt that Minnesota was Mikko’s place at this point. I wanted him to have his own privacy in a way, make his own name and his own career. I just felt there were too many risks for us as brothers and as family members to join the same team and compete for the same ice time. I felt we were better off playing somewhere else.”

more from Koivu plus Zubov is up to a new challenge and has talked to 6-7 teams…
