Just because he is the captain doesn't mean he is free from blame. As a captain and a leader, the blame should start with him. He needs to be more noticeable before the blame starts trickling down. Saying his line mates are bad is weak.
He's also currently on the 3.75M cap hit. As said before, he's having a season just like what Getzlaf had a couple years ago. He will be going up next season, and we should determine how well he does by then with that cap hit. He is not 8.25M right now, and should not be treated as such.
