He's been captain at every level has won championships. You hear Briere say "I'm not ready to go home" one time and he should be captain. One bad playoffs, from the entire team, and Richards is a terrible captain. Did you want him stripped after last season's finals appearance? Sounds like you're just buying what the papers are selling.
And I love the argument of being an educated hockey player, I played the sport yada yada. Yea me too. Doesn't mean me or you knows what's going on in the dressing room, does it? Where's your facts to strip him because he's a terrible leader? Your fandom and "experience" says it's the right move?
It's just a baseless argument that you're being fed to by a few journalists. You're entitled to any opinion you want, and I'm entitled talk about how silly it is.
