At the end of the day...
the Captain has to be held accountable. no matter the debate over specific players, and who in the pecking order needs to bear the brunt of criticism regarding the offense. at the end of the day, the Captain has to take responsibility.

Dustin takes full responsibility for fathering all 4 of his kids.

He was terrible tonight, I watched a few times where he would get knocked down to the ice and then take his time to get back to his feet while the pens were the offensive zone... Absolutely no fight

The air of leadership from behind the bench seems questionable too.

The best part was him shooting it DIRECTLY into the crowd, then tripping over his own skates and falling face-first into the boards. Stupid mother****er

I don't think the illegitimate love child of Mark Messier, Steve Yzerman and Wendel Clark could help now.

I agree but how do you hold him accountable? Strip him of the captaincy, bench him, trade him? When the 'workforce' isnt performing and bringing the desired results you have to look at management, GM, Coach, VP and so on. If you take Brown out of the equation, who's next? And so on.....

What exactly is "the captain" supposed to do? Yell at some guys? Kick a water cooler?
OK. Then what??
"He should play better!" you say? OK, I'll sign that petition. But he's scuffling. Hell, they all are.
This is much deeper than a passive captain.
