In hindsight anyone who thinks SO complaints are a large factor in Jagr's tenure here are just grasping at straws. What SO moments did Dru have? None so why even bring it up?
Again you missed my point...if the 2 are linked then Gaborik using his first season here as the bar, should have been Captain. You can be a great performer and not be a good leader.
You also missed where I said anyone trying to compare Dury to Jagr woul be CRAZY...how much clearer can I be?
And there were other complaints about Jagr's leadership besides the SO, going back a little further a lot of fans thought that the C weighed to heavily on Leetch because much like Drury he was a pretty soft-spoken guy.
I've been fairly consistent that I think Drury should be gone and I'm HAPPY that he will be gone...but nobody knows what happens in the locker room...THAT was my only point.
