I think you are partially right. But there lies the question, is karlsson going to stay that way? Is this still because he has a nagging injury?Ev wrote:Flo The Action wrote:Ev wrote:At the end of the day, you usually need a Canadian captain to win a Cup...
Are you suggesting a transfer of captaincy to stone or even more inflammatory, trading karlsson?
I saw all the captaincy I needed out of karlsson in the playoffs last year.
I’m fine with him wearing the C. What needs to happen is likely having more than a few leading voices in the locker room.
I have nothing against him personally, but if this is the Karlsson we can expect going forward, he isn't worth shelling out $12+ million in my opinion.
I was just saying, there has been something like 8 non Canadian captains who won the Cup.
Because yeah, he’s not worth 12 mill but he will want it.
I have a feeling he can come back and be he player he was but it might need another year and another operation. That’s a lot to deal with.
I don’t think he’s the next Bobby Ryan of this team but if he lacks his mobility than he’s more likely an 8mill Dman not 12. Tough call. But I can’t see this team without kalrsson. I guess if a team offers us the moon in échange you have to think long and hard but it could still very much backfire on us.
