You want me to do that? Show me some respect and give me what that type of player is worth. Sherman/Avs have a history of dis-respect when it comes to their players. That's why his father said "it's not about the money."
So does he want to be captain because of the pay raise? Or does he want to be captain because he feels he is one? If he wants to be captain for the sake of it, then he should prove it on the ice instead of holding out. I'm thinking ROR might be just jealous of Landskog being named Captain. Maybe he'll grow out of it, but if I'm Chia I don't overpay for that kind of attitude. Colorado messed up, should've given the "C" to a vet like Hejduk, Johnson or even Downie and avoid this clash of egos lol.

And Chara was a man with a proven track record and a $7 million contract when he demanded the "C". ROR was a teen just 2 years ago. Please don't compare those two.
