you don't necessarily build around the guy who gets the most points, either. It was the work ethic and the intensity I think he wanted to mold the team around more than the point production.
I don't even know why I'm arguing this point because in the height of Koivu worship I wanted Nolan to captain the team and only this year have accepted Mikko. It's part of the plan. We're picking up young players now that have high level leadership experience so the future isn't set in stone. Fletcher wants to build a team that has all of Mikko's positive characteristics much as the Blues as a team reflect Backes'.
