If you feel obligated as an organization to appoint BIlly G as player liason and hire Tocchet for his locker room presence. Don't misunderstand I love both of those guys but when they were players we didn't need to hire people to lead the room. They lead the room. IMO hiring these two guys will not fully bridge that gap or fill that void. We need a real captain.
How much is the pool up to on Sid now? a $1000? he's a school teacher, he teaches English composition… in this little town called Adley, Pennsylvania. The last eleven years, he has been at Thomas Alva Edison High School. He was a coach of the baseball team in the springtime. Back home,when he tells people what he does for a living and they think well, now that figures.
Hey... our captains lead by example! So, they aren't vocal... you don't have to be when you lead by example. Now, when that example is ignoring the coaches and system and doing whatever the heck you please on the ice... THAT might not be so good... but hey... they're the best!
