This just made the hockey withdrawls go into overdrive as now I find myself IMPATIENTLY waiting for the season to get going. I bought a Saku Koivu shirt last summer when I took a trip to Montreal. I think it's fate. I can't wait to see Koivu and Selanne playing together!! They tore it up for Finland in the olympics and now they're on the same team and can only get better! Oh my-- I need to remember to breathe.
