I'll agree he did get lazy in his final years but he wasn't captain when he eventually started to become lazy. It was stripped and given to our whatever captain now.

Morrow did score the OT goal 4 years ago but that doesn't give him any room to be excused for the dumb **** hes done. Oh and forgot to mention his Olympic play as well. Go to Canada play great win the gold, come back to Dallas, don't give a ****.

What a warrior. Look, he's on the ice and stuff.

But why does he still have his stick? That's odd.

I assume the stick broke when he fell. The picture just didn't get it.



Robidas makes me shake my head.

Razor said he was one of our best players. Clearly that means he's the bestest ever.

I'd argue best player off the ice.

Look at Washington ever since Ovechkin was named captain.

Obviously, Eriksson and Benn aren't Ovechkin, but giving one of them the C just because they're the best we've got is stupid.

That said, it'd still be Benn or Eriksson for me.

I agree, but I'm not sure he would be vocal enough on the bench and in the locker room.

I would LIKE to see

Loui C
Benn A
Ott A (if he's still here)
if not
Daley A

He actually said "best players, plus some righty-lefty action so Robidas out there."

Didn't catch that last part. Probably shut it out after hearing best players on the ice and Robidas being out there.

The Captain personifies the team. Think about it. Boston-Chara; big, strong, defensively sound, tough. Just like the Bruins. Canucks-Sedin; quick, great hands, great vision, all around great offensive player. Just like the Canucks. The best example in my opinion is St. Louis-Backes; strong, two way, gritty player that honestly doesn't have a ton of offensive talent but works his tail off to contribute. St. Louis has won games all season with gritty, hard nosed, two way efforts. The captain is very important in my opinion. As an outsider, I think it has to go to Loui.

That makes a lot of sense. But GMJN will probably give it to Benn if he's looking to keep with that theme. Players like Benn seem to be what he craves.

I'm convinced that this time two years from now our entire group of forwards will be 6'2 and 215

I'm not sure there's a guy on the roster who should be captain of this team. If Morrow goes, please god let Morrow go, roll with the A until this club finds an identity.

How can any self professed hockey expert watch Robidas play and call him good? On his best days he's a 5th or 6th defenseman who should get 15 minutes a night. Most of the time I like Ribeiro and what he brings to the Stars but enough is enough. If there's any way he can be traded to Nashville for Blum+ or my pipedream scenario to Florida this off season for Bjugstad then he needs to be gone. The entire culture of this team needs to change which means the vast majority of this roster needs to go.

I guess I've officially won my avatar bet. Maybe a Jimmy Buffett "changes in lattitudes, changes in attitudes" theme might not be awry. Suggestions for piqued to work his magic would be appreciated.

Any chance we get a GM press conference after St. Louis? I'd love to hear Niewendyk's thoughts on how the players responded when he didn't make any moves at the deadline.

Think the best you'll get is the season ending interviews on Sunday or Monday.

That's funny. I know I was dead against that signing and most people here said it was Edm's fault for making it a nasty issue.

To be fair, he was pretty decent for us. I expected him to be out for long stretches with his issues with injuries, but he hung in there, although he did regress drastically wrt his offense after that initial outburst. I guess 6-15-21 +11 is decent for the salary he got, but he isn't part of the plan and should NOT be brought back.
