Betts does everything right...for a fourth liner and a PKer. He shouldn't be ashamed at all...I get the sense, however, that today's primmadonnas wouldn't take well to someone like Betts as captain. I can't say if he would make a good captain. I cannot say if his personality would make him a good captain (and for those basing their opinion on his ability to be captain solely on what they see on the ice, realize there's more). What I also can't say is if people will follow him.
Than they should trade for a Primmadonna worthy C then eh? Because the primmadonnas aint cutting it.
lol at Avery as the C. Literally the day he arrives named by Sather..lol
At least he's kicking his own ass right now. Betts isn't exactly terrifying either so your argument isn't making any sense.
You stated as part of your argument that Betts isn't captain material because he doesn't "kick ass." So, since you have failed to mention to me in what way Chris Drury "kicks ass" I can logically infer that you don't believe Drury is captain material either?
in a way we were all spoiled with mess and we will always look to our captain to take the team on his back the way he did both on and off the ice. drury isnt that guy, period. it is his fault? no...the fact that weve spent 3 pages debating that betts and cally are really the only conceivable options over drury pretty well spells out the problems with this team and just how horribly constructed this team is. anyone who really thought drury was going to be the guy to lead us to the cup was really swimming in the sather coolaid. ive said it 100 times, for a fraction of prucha's salary they could've had their captain...shanny. sathers savior for the locker room issues was sitting right under his nose for 3 months...moron.
