Vanek is not a "challenge the coach" type of leader.
This team didn't have a guy on the roster that would have challenged Ruff, IMO. The closest they have to that guy can't wear a C.
Again, I agree 100%. My point was that lindy went with, presumably, the 3rd best option of a pile of bad options, which I think directly snubbed Vanek. Gaustad with the A was fine, but he proved himself only later on. No matter what, you're right... That guy was not on this team.
I mean people are already coronating Foligno as the heir to the C, essentially based on ONE game, and a good run of points in a handful of others. That says a lot.
It ain't working anymore, and if Ruff and Regier truly are joined at the hip, then just be done with them both. I think we all wanted to see Ruff get his cup here, but is that even realistic, if he and Regier are so bound to one another? Of course not.
