I’ll always remember the awful game the Blackhawks played against the Calgary Flames on November 19th. To summarize, the Blackhawks played terribly, losing 7-2. But I don’t remember how badly they played, I remember Ray Ferraro saying: “Jonathan Toews just slammed his stick against the boards in front of the Blackhawks bench and screamed at his teammates, ‘You guys need to wake up!’”
How many captains really do this in the NHL? How many captains hold their teammates accountable for poor play? How many have the guts to chew out their team in front of a crowd?
At least one. Jonathan Toews. (x)
