Can a team have too many leaders?
That's a question I have been posing to the Komets, since they have so many of them.
Colin Chaulk, obviously, has been the leader of the team for ages and led them to five Cups since 2003. Brett Smith was a captain with CHL-champion Bossier-Shreveport in 2011 and an alternate as the Komets won the Cup last season. Newcomer Tyler Butler captained Arizona and Tulsa the last few years.
Plus, you've got Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, an alternate captain, and Brent Henley, who has also worn the 'A.'
And Stephon Thorne was a captain in juniors two seasons ago.
The Komets have a lot of answers to the question -- and I will explore it more soon -- but I agree with what Chaulk said: "If you have too many guys fighting over the job (of leader), there could be issues. But I think with the guys who are here, we're all old enough and everyone will take their turn and know that if one guy says something, then you have to just back them up, basically."
Kind of establishing himself as the Alpha Dog, eh?
