Oh I agree with this too. Regier is very much part in parcel with that whole mess. But plenty of people thought of a guy like Gaustad as the captain type, because he displayed a bit more of those qualities you'd expect, despite not being much of a point producer. People looked to Vanek because of his production and effort and ability to carry the bunch when hot. Pominville is queitly consistent, has a good work ethic, but a captain?
And now Gaustad is gone and Vanek is disenfranchised. Roy probably stamped his ticket outta here. Pominville, at least today, looks like a dog on a chain.
