Here's a look at 10 of the NHL's all-time best in providing the leadership that got the most out of their teammates:
10. Shane Doan
Few captains in any sport have faced the challenges that Doan has during the past three years. Not only is he relied upon to provide offense and on-ice leadership, but he's also the captain of a team that has been without an owner for three years -- the NHL bought the Phoenix Coyotes out of bankruptcy in 2009 and has operated it since then....

officially a saga) has worn me out to the point where I couldn't care less
where he ends up. I’ve come full circle with how I feel about him joining...
Well, the summer is almost over. We still aren’t guaranteed an NHL season, but we still have some hockey news to talk about. It’s not necessarily new news, but there are new developments in old news. So let’s get to it in some good old-fashioned bullet points.
CBA notes: The players and the owners are still at a standstill, and with 12 days to go, there isn’t much hope for...
