Mikko Koivu Not Playing Like A Captain

from Jim Souhan of the Star Tribune,

It’s not Minnesota Nice to wish ill upon people, but this is the best possible scenario, given the way The Captain is playing....

The only way Koivu got his name in the boxscore was by taking ridiculous penalties. Three of them. He finished minus-3, and the details were as telling as the results....

As talented as the Blackhawks are, the Wild trailed 2-0 midway through Friday’s game, and trails 2-0 in the first-round playoff series, largely because Koivu isn’t earning his letter.

Whenever the playoffs are over, Koivu needs to cede the C to Parise, the team’s best player and leader. Or maybe that should happen on Saturday.
