I wouldn't put any stock in that - besides there's evidence for both sides of the "leadership" argument. It's best to leave off-ice issues out of it, we don't know what it's like. All we get to really see is on the ice, where a 5'6" skater is three steps behind the play, shying away from contact and missing every pass and every shot.

Gionta... it's high and wide

People have argued wich of DD or Eller needs to go but i'll argue the weak link is Gio. He's like Gomez at this point where all he does is skate well.
He backchecks tenaciously and he has a strong work ethic. Can't ignore those aspects of his game.
