    Ironic considering it was his personality that made him expendable in Ottawa. I would call it maturity, but to each their own.

    Captains don't have to be inspirational-motivation type. The problem with this fans of this team is they think Messier's leadership style is the only one that works.

    At some point this team needs to shit or get off the pot and select a Captain. The veteran leadership core will take a 50% hit at TDL with possibly both Kreider and Fast going and then the following off-season Staal and Hank will be gone.

    He seems to take an interest in helping the young players on the ice and on the bench. It’s not about giving tv interviews

    Crosby has the personality of a flat tire.

    Apparently he's an excellent leader.

    Crosby is a great dude with some personality, he just keeps it straight for the media.

    Christ.

    We have Zbad at $5.3 for 2 more years.

    That alone is a huge pass on any of Gorton's faux pas.

    Mika has personality, he’s just a gentle type. His interviews show that, but you can find plenty of clips of him goofing off and having personality.

    My own opinion is that guys like Zib are great teammates who do everything right and lead by example. However, I always have felt I like guys like Zib keeping the A and letting someone like (heat for this one anticipated) DeAngelo or a Trouba (Not saying those two particularly, just the best examples on the current roster) type rise up and claim the C. It’s not the most popular take, but I like guys like Zib and Fast with As, being great locker room guys, playing the right way, but someone whose a bit of a hot head wearing the C. Just personal preference.

    Freaking Zibanejad, somehow, under the radar - is averaging a 100+ point season and almost 50 goals

    I was excited when we traded for this guy, but my highest hopes for him were a solid two way 2C. He has crushed my expectations for him as a player. I love this trade more and more than I did when we made it. I’m also kind of amazed that he can assert himself on a game and have as much of an effect as Panarin.

    I'm grateful that Persians can claim another great person :sarcasm:

    I feel dirty saying this, he's our Patrice Bergeron. Is Zibs the leader in short-handed points?

    Best contract value in the league probably atm. Might get very expensive in two years :(

    My only concern with Mika at this point is durability. Otherwise, we've finally got an elite 1C in his prime.

    Is it safe to now call off the search for a "true" top line center?

    Obviously Mika's been killing it this season, but I didn't realize he has 60 points in 48 games. That would be on pace for a 102 point season if he didn't get injured.

    But, I was told that Panarin is the only reason the Rangers are challenging for a playoff spot.

    If not for Panarin, the Rangers are essentially Detroit.

    But that elite top line center, If not for Panarin, the Rangers are essentially Detroit. But they have a 24 year old who is trending towards 60 points, If not for Panarin, the Rangers are essentially Detroit.

    The Wings are the Rangers without Panarin, an offensive blue-line, or good goaltending.

    The first three are indisputable, but I think you could make a case for Ziba versus Eichel and or Barkov.

    What a f***in stud. Busts his ass every god damned shift and makes plays. Plays in every conceivable situation imaginable as well and EXCELS.

    His stock is rising in the league. Was considered a 'marginal' 1st line center before this year, now he's considered a 1st line center even on a top team, by next year he'll be called top 10 without a doubt. Others need to catch on to what we already know.

    If Chytil can continue follow his development curve, which he so far is, then holy sheeeeeeeet

    If he keeps up his current scoring rate and plays every game he will hit exactly 40 goals (and 86 points) in 69 games.
