Some of this has to fall on Giroux at some point
I said from the get go that he was not ready to be captain yet, and I think he's shown no reason for us to believe otherwise. He just doesnt seem to have that leadership, the physical presence on the ice.
We need our captain to be a guy who can play both ways, score (of course), but at the same time, can fight and throw the body around, and get into the dirty stuff.
Look at some of our past captains
Lindros, Primeau, Richards, Pronger....these are guys who are leaders. Richards was not the best pure goal scorer on the team, that was Carter's job, Giroux should not have to handle both.
Unfortunately, we lack a player like the aforementioned 4 at the moment.
