As for him not being a vocal guy in the locker room, that couldn't be any further from the truth.

Much like every other time this "discussion" has come up, it still continues to be absurd.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. How many seasons does the team need to have an utter collapse before, in your opinion, as fans we should be concerned about his leadership?

And as I said, Wes Walz himself spoke about the lack of leadership in the room. That guy knows Koivu, is around the team, and knows a thing or two about leadership.

Beyond that, a captain has a certain role to fill in terms of being the face of the franchise. Koivu blowing off Russo, arguably the only real media outlet the team has, doesn't speak much to being the point man between the team and the fans.
