The guy's a born leader though and in a short tournament, you need a guy who bleeds your country's colors. Kind of like Peter Forsberg I guess..
Those questioning whether Parise should play or not are bitter Devils fans who are mad that he ditched them this past offseason for Minnesota.

I never really thought of JJ being team captain, but I never really played CLOSE attention to USA hockey. I was always for David Backes being captain. But now that I think of it, Jack Johnson would be a great captain. Honestly, there are a few choices (Suter, Parise, JJ, Backes, Brown) and no one can really be mad at who gets it over someone else. Plenty of leadership on team USA.
