As Kenny Rogers sang

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.



Don't worry Scotty,Slats will give you a job when Columbus fires you.
You also have to be careful when judging leadership. Guys who are great leaders are suddently worthless when a team doesn't perform up to expectations. And guys who are deemed to lack "true leadership" suddenly start winning championships and they've magically become great leaders.

I can remember reading preview guides 20 years with people questioning the leadership of guys like Yzerman and Sakic, who "never lead anyone to anything." Perception can be a great tool at times, but it can also be a great detriment.
