I had you pictured more of a Brasserie T kind of guy... No homo, no stalking.
I actually am... you creep. (Great fruity mixed drinks, used to go with my ex on the occasion)

I'm an awful fan for not thinking that Gionta's good enough for his contract or icetime. Okay.

I think you should review your standards, you'll feel a lot of deception if your criteria to being a good captain is to be equal to Joe Sakic.
Gionta is a good leader, he's a good player, he plays hard. He's a good captain.
Why the hell shouldn't we, the MONTREAL CANADIENS, want a captain as good as Sakic? Why does everyone just settle for a mediocre mercenary and immediately prop up (on his high chair) as a good captain when he's shown very little on-ice talent. I can't judge his leadership, I'm not in the locker room - but good captains RAISE their level of play. Gionta gets injured or shoots high and wide while given the best centres of the team, that's been his career.

I don't like his play, didn't like it all year. This thread isn't about me so I'll stop talking about it but we deserve a captain as good as Sakic, not as mediocre as Gionta.
