You can like whomever you want, but to deny that he is a phenomenal player is spitting into the wind.
he led them for what 20 games? great, still not a playoff megastar and still a ghost for good stretches. i never said the guy doesn't have talent. he is a great player. in fact i even said he could be a playoff megastar in the future but he is in no way one now. and my point about him not leading a team is that he reminds me of the type of guy that has to play with elite level talent. his stats would be no where near what they are now if he was playing for the rangers (and we didn't have gaborik). another example of this is marian hossa. hossa is a better example because he has been on more teams. everywhere hossa goes he goes where there is already established elite talent imo because he doesn't want to be "the guy". malkin reminds me of the same thing.
