And judging from the on-ice intensity and emotion during the worst stretch of hockey in Predators history (when considering our talent, opponents lackthereof, expectations, and what's on the line), he's a major part of the lack of leadership that has reared its ugly head multiple times this year.
I agree. All the talk about Eaton, Markov, Weber and Suter, should probably be shifted toward Kimmo.

Right now though, we can't afford to lose anyone else.
