*Buzzsaw* Posted November 7, 2021 Share Posted November 7, 2021 I have to wonder about leadership and the way this team is currently being motivated and why they are slumping. Yeah, Bo is still Captain, and I am not suggesting he should be replaced, but there are some past leaders missing from the dressing room. Marky, Edler, Tanev, Beagle... all these guys were calming influences who settled down the team when they started to panic. Their replacements are not the same. When Benning got rid of these guys, he should have found some players who had character. Not that I am suggesting Markstrom should still be a Canuck. (although Benning should have gotten something for him... letting a potential Vezina trophy nominee walk with no return is inexusable) I didn't like Tanev's departure... the replacement we saw, i.e. Nate Schmidt was basically invisible when it comes to leadership. (not to mention his mediocre play and 1.5 million dollar extra cost) I also have to wonder if Edler could have been signed at a home town discount... maybe he would have been more expensive than the alternatives, but the intangibles he brought to the dressing room have to be considered. Certainly I am not seeing any leadership coming from Green. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
