With GM Bill Guerin indicating that he will not resign Captain Mikko Koivu, it leaves us wondering if he will retire or sign with another team.
Koivu put up 21 points in 59 regular season and 0 points in 4 postseason games. He reached a milestone 1,000 games this season and put up 709 points. He had a 70 +/- over the course of his career.
Koivu is 37 years old and is forced upon a decision on whether to retire, go into the free agency market, or play in Europe. The Wild have some good up-and-coming star players including Kirill Kaprizov and Gerry Mayhew, so they have some good coming for the team.
