Also lol at the "tinordi for captain" pomp-pomp team. Talk about jumping the gun here. Remember the Higgins and Komisarek for captain days?
Spoken like a true stats guy who only sees numbers and not individuals and intangibles.

You may look at the C as just a decoration. Fine, you are but a fan. However, in the real world of the NHL where there are coaches and players, the C is not a decoration. The C stands for leadership, the person who has tremendous impact on his team..

One of those intangibles that cannot be measured.

Great post by the way. Shows your flawed mind-set when it comes to team sports.
