3. Theoren Fleury, Calgary Flames
Wanted for bad attitude off the ice
Fleury was electric on the ice, no doubt about it; but as the years wore on, reports surfaced
of Fleury’s poor off-ice conduct, and it’s hard to believe that a person engaging in such activities
makes for a good leader on a hockey team. If you want an idea of what I’m talking about,
read his memoirs. Alcohol abuse, cocaine, and much, much more. Fleury thankfully turned
his life around after retirement, but the captaincy role just wasn’t right for him.
