The worst thing a leader can be is evasive and disconnected in times of struggle, which he has been. And perhaps worst been in denial of his / and his team's poor play. Which has also been the case.
Parise has never shown me that, nor has Suter. While it would not be feasible to just hand them the "C" right now, I'd seriously consider it if I was Mike Yeo. However we'll see what type of leaders they are over the course of the next few months.
Which coach, player, trainer or waterboy are you on the bench that you see Koivu being Evasive and disconnected? So he's not a good quote when they are losing. Big deal.
