Eller on twitter and this interview has badmouthed the owners too but he's rational and articulate, and doesn't attack others who disagree with him.
And Cole is actually a year older than Gionta. No way should he be captain over Gorges and Plekanec, or even Pacioretty.
Cole is obviously the only one who gets a bonus in the NHL. He negotiated for that because he knew a lockout was coming and you would rather he did what with it exactly? Give it back to the owners?
You obviously don't understand what being in a union and presenting a united front means. Know a lot of players who call out teammates during the season? It is the same thing. If Hamrlik is too stupid to keep his dissent to himself while the players are trying to negotiate he deserves whatever he gets called.
Coles age means nothing and he could probably play for another 5 years but don't let that get in the way of you choosing your "favoritest playor!" for captain. It is about leadership and mentorship. Pacioretty!
The team chose Cole to represent them so that holds a little more water than your "but Eller speaks so nicely, he smart!"
