Saku Koivu is optimistic he'll be ready to play in time for the start of the NHL season.

The Montreal Canadiens captain has been skating regularly now for the last three weeks after recovering from surgery to repair a torn retina in his left eye.

While things have been going well on the ice, Koivu acknowledges there is always the possibility of suffering further injury to his eye.

"When I look in a straight line, everything is fine," he tells La Presse. "But when I look side-to-side... it's a bit of a problem."

Koivu was struck in the eye by an errant high stick from Justin Williams during Game 3 of the Habs first round playoff series against Carolina.

If it is a problem when you look side to side why are you playing? You can't go through a whole game only looking straight and depending on your team mates to be your eyes. He even knows that he could further the eye injury, I would personally wait until my eye has recovered you only have 2 eyes and you can't replace them.
