I do not pass judgement on anyone's character, personal issues, relationships, etc. I occasionally have made comments that someone or the team did or did not have a good game or season, in my opinion, based on what I have observed. Viewing the game is out in the public for people to see. Most of what takes place as a captain is behind closed doors and not in the public purview. We may see the results, but we (or the vast majority of us) do not have direct knowledge of what takes place, or what is said in the locker room. I can only recall once ever having made comment on a prospect's performance, based on a USHL game that I attended. As it turned out, my one game observation turned out to be significantly wrong compared to that player's eventual contribution to the Sioux program.

I don't think you can choose a best captain ever. Too many great young men to choose from. I think my favorite captain of all time would have to be Matt Greene. To be a captain in the NHL is a pretty special thing. Nice that Toews and Parise share that honor as well.
