McGuire: Koivu almost a Flame...

Now remember...this is a few moons ago when I was trying to become general manager of the Calgary Flames, the first thing I would have done was to get Saku Koivu and I remember there was an amazing offer that had come through.
-Pierre McGuire, on "Melnick in the Afternoon" (Team 990 Montreal), broadcast Apr 09.

EDIT: I'm sorry, it appears I have misheard what Pierre said, thanks to a few readers, here's what he really said.
You won't get this anywhere else, unless you were listening to the Team 990 yesterday.

Wow, Koivu in Calgary, now that would be something!

His first move would've been to get Koivu, but Craig Button won out the GM job.
McGuire was always close to the Flames organisation, so he probably knew of their inner workings.
I wonder what was so amazing about this deal?

Hmm, interesting indeed. I wonder what was supposed to come Montreal's way?

Only Pierre knows that, do you think I should email him and ask him about this?
