    Default What would Messier do?

    Welp, today's the day. If the Kings win tonight we all can give Kopitar (small scale) "cred" for rallying the squad. If they lose we can add it to the exhibit list for of his lack 'conventional' leadership skills trial(date pending).

    Also, this may be a preview for the few (guilty) that think Doughty is leaving and what that defense would look like without number 8; so double down on the anxiety meds (read: dat dank bud) and enjoy the game. Or watch through the spaces where your fingers aren't covering your eyes. =)


    Back to the thread title: In my mind's eye, he'd motivate these guys with a dead eyed stare and say nothing but it would be wholly uncomfortable.

    If I was Kopitar here's what I would do;

    Embrace the vegas!

    I'd go out and get Carrot top....you know this guy




    I'd bring him in after warmups and give him 10 minutes with the boys, no holds barred "comedy"

    Then I'd boot him out and tell the boys, "If we don't have the lead at intermission, he'll be back giving the pep talk"

    That's what I'd do if I was Kopitar, but then again I'm not Kopitar

    Do we get Brian Leetch in his prime to fill in for Doughty?

    *laughing*

    Jam: In your scenario Kopitar would be a "prop" Captain? Hmmm, that joke has layers.

    Aaron: Pretty sure Lafontaine has a permanent lump on the base of his skull named Messier. So, agreed.

    So, you wanna give Kopi a chuckle with Carrot Top, when you could bring in say a "Bill Burr?" I see, you don't want to take him out of the game with bruised ribs--you're always thinking ahead.

    UMMM..How do we know Kopi will/can rally the squad?
    I've never seen him as that kind of guy.

    Sure he's the captain, but he's not that kind of leader. Somebody else in the room will rally the squad.

    This is based on your extensive time in the dressing room of course. I've seen him gather the guys together in key situations before. However I don't claim to know what goes on behind the scenes. All I know is what I hear and I've never seen a teammate say a bad word about him and have heard many say he is a great leader. Let's rally behind our team instead of taking pot shots at it's Captain.

    Reading is fundamental. lol

    Don't be a clown. It's an opinion, just like yours.
    It's no secret many have questioned Kopi's ability to be the captain in a sense of a vocal leader in the room. It's not his style.

    Can he lead? No doubt. I never questioned that.

    I just don't see him as the vocal guy. He's no Messier that is going to guarantee a win. It's not his style.
