This Saturday won’t be Saku Koivu’s season debut. The Habs captain will have to wait until at least Monday to skate in front of the home fans. With the Habs at 3-1-0-0 they are in no rush to bring Koivu back with the risk of him going back on the shelf. This will allow Chris Higgins to hang around a little bit longer and he might get another chance to play Saturday VS the Leafs, or he will sit again in favor of waiver pick up Steve Begin. Saku Koivu played in all 82 games last season, and we’re all hoping he gets into at least 77 this year starting Monday.
