I mean, Giroux is an amazing player; one of my (if not my very) favourite hockey player. He gives personality to the team and is an amazing all around. Yet, do you think his presence as your capitain might mean you won't ever be the Broad Street Bullies?
Do you feel your team has changed, and if so, how do you feel about it?
The second best captain in the team's history is almost universally accepted as Dave Poulin. His talent and skills, though not spectacular, were surpassed by his leadership abilities and dedication, attributes that would be lauded as phenomenal for athletes on any level in any sport. Poulin and the teams under Mike Keenan of the 1980's were hardly emblematic of what transpired in the 1970's yet his grace and character were matched with appreciation by any of us who remember the 70s and experienced the 80s.
