When was the last time he talked about wanting a Stanley Cup? Used to say it all the time.

I think taking the C would help too, but only if we have a really good option to replace him, someone who can be classy and take the pressure off without humiliating him.
Nailed it.

I this point, I think that it wouldn't hurt for him to see 1 or 2. Dunno, might just help. I strongly feel like he is underperforming tremendously. The amount of times he has fallen on the ice since the Olympics is astounding. Also someone mentioned it in another thread, but I too in all the years I have watched hockey, (correct me if I'm wrong) I've never seen a star player do that so often...nor such decline in play that wasn't the result of a serious injury of some type.
