Exactly what LEADERSHIP has Ortmeyer shown. Blocking shots isn't leadership.....missing wide open nets isn't leadership, he didn't lead...he set an example of how to carve out a nice little NHL career on guts and hustle! I give Jed all the credit in the world for that, it takes some guts to get in front of alot of those shots, but you are trying to put him on a level he CLEARLY was never on!
