Exactly this. This is why a player like Yakupov is having such a hard time. The leaders on the Coilers are not leaders. They are punk kids that have created cliques and are seriously lacking in moral fiber. There is no Jonathan Toews on this team. Just a bunch of Patrick Kanes with nobody to hold them accountable.
Kane is playing some phenomenal hockey right now and is also one of the best hockey players in the world. However, the Hawks would be no where without captain serious.
