I think that Kap will never be the leader if they keep him on this contract and signing bonus, because you are telling the team we have no faith in Kap for the long run and we will look at him year to year . How do you expect them to rally behind him . if he has 2 to 3 bad games the people will ask for his head and especially in the playoffs.
I have to disagree here. Do you really think the team will think less of him because he took an incentive laden team friendly contract that will let his fellow players get paid as well? Also who would be asking for his head, the fans? Because I can almost guarantee that his teammates wont be paying attention to the mewing of a few malcontent fans. Then there's his work ethic that has been touted by coaches and media members both. It's been reported many times that Kap always has the best parking spot at the facility, not because it's reserved, he's just the first guy there.
