If Saku is a non-factor as a leader...how come we collapse everytime he's not there?
'Cause no one thinks Begin is a better hockey player than Saks. Personally, I'm not even questioning the fact that Saks is the best centerman we've got. Imagine that I questioned the fact that he could be #1, though he's the best we've got. So you can imagine that Begin is nothing more than a 4th liner playing PK and if he goes on the 3rd line, we're in trouble. So we lost to Carolina 'cause of the lack of talent not because he doesn't speak French.....
But again, if you believe like Saku that a Captain is in the dressing room only, well there's no reason for him to not be the Captain. But with the points I made earlier, you understand that I believe a captain is much more than this.
