One post saying thank you.

I'm in the city for one night. I am not going to rave about Gainey's acquisition of the smurf line (Gomez-Gionta-Cammalleri) even though I am ecstatic. I am not going to comment on Mike Komisarek's utter douchebaggery, because it has been commented on by every Canadiens fan in the world.
I am going to say thank you to Saku Koivu.
I started watching hockey when I was 8 years old and it was in that first year that Saku Koivu had his brave battle with Stomach Cancer.
I remeber the victory against Ottawa where he returned and we clinched a playoff spot.
I remember the ovation.
I remember the pride knowing this brave little man was a Montreal Canadien.

I want to say thank you Saku.
Thanks for the yeoman effort you have put in, thanks for all you have done for this community with your selfless charity work, thanks for putting up with all the jackals garbage. (If you do not know what jackal I am referring to, simply read some of my older posts.)
Saku you were my first hero.
No other player will replace you. No other player did what you did and fought the battles you fought.
Wherever you go, I hope you find succes.
And if you do end up hoisting the Cup in Minnesota or Anaheim, please bring it to Montreal, bring it to a child's hospital bed, do not forget about us.
We will never forget about you.
