Sometimes An Honest Captain Doesn’t Work

from Rich Chere at NJ.com,

“It was a tremendous honor because my personality doesn’t necessarily fit to that position,” (Bobby) Holik said. “It didn’t change me. It’s something I value very highly as far as my career goes, but as the season went on I realized I’m not captain material because sometimes you have to be more politically correct or get along with people. Or not be too honest, because I feel you have to kind of keep the peace.

“I guess I’m just too blunt about some things. Or too honest. You’d think that would be a strength or a good thing about a captain, but not the way I am, I guess, sometimes. At least I don’t think it worked out that well there.”
