canacks1970 Posted March 22, 2015 Share Posted March 22, 2015 You don't think Henrik ever play hurt? You don't think hank was hurt during the 2011 playoffs? The guy had the longest iron man history as a Canuck... He's clearly the better captain. MVP. Scoring CHAMP. Captained us to back to back presidents... Smh. If hank was Canadian and trev was Swedish, no one would say this lol. This is why people like you don't have an open mind. To be honest the THREE of them did a great job as CAPTAIN in they're ERA. Put things into perspective Apollo. Could you say that Hank would had the same success had he played on a crap team throughout the 80's like Smyl. Because imo I don't think Harry Neale could have pulled as big as a trade like Burke did and be able to draft his brother too. Could you say that Hank would have the same success had he played with some of the equipment they had back in the 80's to keep his Iron man streak going?OR Dealing with playing with a wooden stick or dealing with the clutch and grab era in Smyl's and early on in Linden's career? . Would you be saying that Hank would have won a scoring title had he been playing in an era of Gretzky and Super Mario? And do you really think that Hank would have led his team to back to back President's Trophy had he played in a Dynasty era of the Islanders, Oilers, and Penguins like Linden and Smyl did? Are you really going to tell us that . Hank was fortunate to play on some good Canuck teams and not deal with the clutch and grab era. He was also fortunate enough not to be playing against Dynasty teams. Not once in Hank's Career had he ever played on a team that finished below .500 Smyl never played on a team that finished above .500 once in his 13 year career. And yet was able to produce a point per game in his second season And helped his team to the Stanley Cup final in his fourth season . Linden was named part time Captain in his second season. And become the youngest Captain in Canuck history. And like Smyl played on some bad teams before he had some great players to play with ,while Hank had a brother to play with his whole career. I don't look at just stats to justify who was a better Captain Apollo. They were all great Captains in they're TIME. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
