Continued: Reusse: It's the Olympics, this is hockey; if Koivu can play, he should

There’s an expectation that Finland will give the same honor to Koivu, if he gets to Sochi and is ready to go before next Thursday’s opener.

“OK, but what if Koivu ‘does’ get hurt playing for Finland?” selected media members and many Wild fans will continue to moan.

OK, and what if Erik Haula or Jason Zucker or goalie Darcy Kuemper (maybe the Wild’s most important figure at the moment) gets hurt playing for the Iowa Wild in Des Moines during the break?

This is what happens with hockey players. They heal. They play.

Zach Parise just got done proving that to everyone as First Star of the Week.

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
