So last year when Zetterberg put the team on his severely injured back and willed them into the playoffs, that was proving his lack of leadership and skill?
Good story. Too bad it isn't even remotely true. Zetterberg didn't "put this team on his back and will them into the playoffs last year. He didn't play a single game between February 8th and our first round playoff series on April 24th.
Nyquist put the team on his back a year ago, scoring 13 goals and 8 assists in March and April. Not Zetterberg, who only played 45 games last year, none of which were in the second half of the season when we were fighting to make the playoffs.
Nevertheless, I agree with your larger point. Which is that there's nothing wrong with the team leadership.
