5. It's not hard to see why Ron Wilson chose John-Michael Liles an alternate captain with Mike Komisarek and Mikhail Grabovski both sidelined with injury. Liles is the oldest player on the team (30) and a steadying presence in the dressing room. But he's also a light and witty personality. The former Michigan State University star is notorious for chirping players in their post-game interviews. Case in point on Tuesday night when he yelled "What a player!" as Tyler Bozak met with the media following a three-point effort against the Lightning. Similar scenario on Saturday when he barked "Thattaboy Franny!" as Cody Franson talked about scoring his first goal of the season in a win over the Capitals.

I've definitely liked Liles' performance as a Leaf and agree with Wilson giving him an A, but praising his leadership abilities based off that is about as silly as the whole 'changing the CD player' thing with Phaneuf.

He wasn't praising his leadership with that.  He was saying he's a light and witty personality in the dressing room.

It seemed like one was connected to the other. But it's no big deal.

Probably for the best. My counter-arguments were top-notch.

Like Connolly and Lupul, I see Liles was quite a steal by Burke.  What I don't get is Colorado seemed to know what they had in him where they had even rumoured to possibly give him the captaincy next.

Soooo....he is a UFA with a $4.2 mil contract.  Like someone else mentioned, I think I like his game more than Kaberle's.

I can't see how how the Leafs can have Liles on the roster next year without moving someone else.  Maybe I will move to the Armchair GM thread.
All The Best
