That may be true, but he has not managed to get the Leafs to win, despite a lineup in many years that really should. I'm not knocking his talent as a player, but pointing out how he's really not a lot different from Olli on the leadership side: best player on his team, shows up night in night out (not counting Olli's slide in the second half this season, since it seems pressure's on him), respect from his teammates...but can't inspire them to try harder themselves.
"...and ultimately it doesn't matter."
