but that's besides the point. i dont think vanek has any leadership qualities to begin with.
is goal scoring a leadership quality?
if mopping was a leadership quality, I'd give Vanek the C in a heartbeat...
I agree. I want to keep Vanek, but I'm not sure he's captain quality. When the team starts to get dominated in a game he gets down on himself and mopes while guys like Ott and Weber continue to play their game and try to make a difference. I can't count how many times we were out of games last year and Ott was still throwing huge hits and trying to swing the momentum.
I wouldn't mind Vanek as an assistant captain if he stayed, but I doubt he does.
