I think Primeau is one of the worst captains in the league which pretty much explains the leadership on our town team. Primeau has made a carreer of not being able to score. Averages 1 goal every 10+ games. That's what I look for in a Captain. I don't recall Joe Sakic, Steve Yzerman, Mark Messier, Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux going through such long slumps in the playoffs.

Resulting effects:

Choice #1: Can't score against Ottawa.

Choice #2: Can't score against Ottawa.

Recurring theme.

Good thing it was Ottawa and not New Jersey. Talk about the stuff hitting the fan. Oh wait! that happened for three games (5,6 and 7) in 2000 when the Flyers couldn't score against the Devils. And we can't even blame Roman Cechmanek for the biggest meltdown in the last 5 years

I think there are better Captains to be had who aren't playing for any team right now.
