And to be fair, there's like me and one other guy defending Horcoff in this thread. We are an increasingly small group.
It isn't about the fans it is about the team and his responsibility as captain of the team. He is suppose to be going above and beyond to make sure this team is as ready as possible and doesn't include staying in Michigan until the last moment while everyone else is here practicing. If he wants to do that, let someone else be the captain. Training camp on Monday is only when it officially starts, but the NHL requires extra effort to be successful, it isn't a 9-5 job.
