If Gainey and Carbonneau had wanted him to be captain because they thought Koivu was not handling his postion properly, they would not have signed Koivu and given him a big raise.
These Begin followers, seem to quickly forget HOW we lost to Carolina. We COLLAPSED as a TEAM when Saku was gone. If Begin was such a leader, don't you think he should have/would have stepped up?

If Saku is a non-factor as a leader...how come we collapse everytime he's not there?
