It didn't do anything for me and I hate Corey Perry. The radio stations are making a deal out of it here but I don't see it. Yeah he shouldn't be so reckless and it's a dangerous play, but he got his penalty. If he does it a second time then it's a different story and someone like Tootoo should be the s*** out of him.
To go up in the rafters at the Joe, you have to have been an otherworldly talent AND been a team leader for basically an entire career. Dats has the talent but not the leadership, Zetterberg is vice versa. It takes a lot to get retired at the Joe, and I'm pretty glad about that. I don't like the idea of retiring a new number every five years.
From watching Dats bust his ass every day the past decade I'd say he has leadership. Lots of times he's the only one who gives a damn out there. Leadership isn't only speaking english well.
