What do you guys think, should Philly take Forsbergs "C" away for the remainding time he is there.... Im shocked it wasn't done earlier when he said he wanted to be traded
Discussions about whether or not he actually demanded a trade, which is one of the reasons you said his C should be stripped, is on topic.

In fact, you were "shocked" he wasn't stripped of it due to the trade demand, suggesting that such a demand is a primary reason to strip the C from a player (an assertion I agree with, even though I personally think the C is overrated in importance). Take away the demand to be traded, and you take away one of your strongest rationales for "demoting" him.

Admonishing people for going off topic is counterproductive, especially when they are fully on topic (and on point, as well).

That blog proves Forsberg is a bad captain how? It says he's a bad captain a few times but gives zero reasons except to question his heart, the one thing even the most zealous Forsberg hater wouldnt deny he has.

Forsberg is a great captain and anyone who disagrees is a liar and a smelly poophead.

Looks like I just proved Forsberg is the best captain in the history of the NHL!

His being injured and your dubious proof of trade requests are your only even remotely concrete reasons for thinking Forsberg doesnt deserve the C. Being injured didnt mean the Devil's took the C away from Stevens, or the Flyers taking it from Primeau, and it shouldnt mean taking it away from Forsberg.

Agreed just another thread to air out bad feelings for Peter the Great. The Captaincy is overrated, but in Philly's position with Foppa being there best player and already under scrutiny if he were to have a bad game its an obvious choice. I personally dont think Jagr is a stand up and give a speech kind of guy because he shows leadership through actions on the ice very similiar to Forsberg.
