He also seems to be very focused on playing hockey (not partying, which is fine for a 23 year old millionaire imo). And lastly, he says the right things to the media and he has a good relationship with them and the fans...
I am a fan of having a young player take the captaincy given they will be with the club for their career and therefore 8 years from now, Giroux will be much better of a captain than someone who was recently named one.
I just don't really like the idea of a finesse player being a captain... I like tough guys...
When did Richards ever not work hard? That was his entire thing. Him being a quiet captain was justified by people because he was a "leader by example".
