A player to provide leadership

Who do you want to be on your team to provide leadership?

Like you are building a new team...and you need someone to provide leadership.

Yzerman? Linden? Sakic?

Personally, i say Yzerman

You slam Linden, but somehow manage to add 41 year old Francis to lead the charge as the leader?

If you think Linden is even in Francis' league, your joking.

Francis is 4th in all time points and 2nd in assists.

I thought the original question was about leadership, not which player was the most talented. What does Francis' point total have to do with his leadership abilities?

Mario Lemieux. When healthy, he can make anyone look good.

Well if I'm building a new team, I would probably want my leader to be young and a really good player.

I'd start with Iginla.

Who do you want to be on your team to provide leadership?

Like you are building a new team...and you need someone to provide leadership.

Yzerman? Linden? Sakic?

Personally, i say Yzerman
-------------------------

Joe Sakic followed very closely by Jarome Iginla and Martin St.Louis of the Bolts.......these 3-together would form a kickass of a line for Team Canada at the upcoming World Cup of Hockey.

Cheers!~

I can't think of anyone I'd rather have more than Steve Yzerman...the quintessential Captain.

It's a toss-up between Steve Yzerman and Saku Koivu.
