People think leadership equates to making noise. This is why, according to many of the experts here, Koivu/Gorges/Pleks/Markov/etc aren't good leaders.

Of course, Cammalleri did rip his teammates when he was here last year, and everyone vilified him for it, so I guess it's a no-win situation.

He wasn't saying that on Twitter, that's a reporter's Twitter who was just recapping what Backes said (presumably to the media in the post-game scrum).
