Ray Whitney's legacy: Leadership, humor, underappreciated skill

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Examples of individual greatness are easy to spot on the ice. An electrifying goal, a game-saving stop, a momentum altering hit or a how-did-he-do-that pass. Great leadership is much harder to define. While there is plenty of hyperbole devoted to the term, rarely does a moment jump out, smack you in the face and proclaim. 'This is leadership.' It did on April...
