Cry? No, we're pretty happy with what we have now, actually. A real star and a real captain.

Humble? Uh, sure. Respectful? Okay. Leader? Hah. True leaders don't need to be called out by teammates going in to Game Seven of the Cup Finals. Cardboard cutouts have shown more sincerity and conviction than Captain Cherrypicker. Even if we didn't acquire Fedorov (who isn't any better C material, quite frankly), I'm frankly happy to be rid of Paul. He's all yours, Avs, for one year at least before he bolts the NHLPA to go play in Finland. I hope Joe doesn't get hurt going into the corners to retrieve the puck, since he's the only one on that line who's going to do so.
