Yes he's tough, yes he's been around alooong time, but is he the leader???? Watching him on the bench nice and quiet during the Boston game was disturbing. The Canes' where getting battered, they needed their leader to step up and show some fire. Sorry I truly am a fan, but what is........ IS!!!! A player like Chad LaRose brings fire and complete passion every time he is on the ice. LaRose brings consistency day in and day out, not even the "A" players do that, and you know who you are... LETS GO CANES'!
