"Mr Cap, the savoir of our game is back
Time has passed, yet his humour still doesn't lack
His heart, his soul, forever engraved in the game
A meme machine, he deserved all his fame
He was a leader, and darn good at that
Yet had his quirky moments, being a good 'ol rat
He even took the Yotes, for Leafs to be free
All for the next GMs, to go on a roster spree
Yet one day, Cap had enough games
He went out on RAIF like a burning flame
So no-good BreKel reported all he had done
And there the Mods took him, our prodigal son
Yet now he is back, rejuvenated as hell
Free from his ban, free from his cell
And as he comes back, we can all say
Halilujah, oh have we waited for this day
So here's to Cap, to all he's done
For his legacy, for sure, will never be gone"

This was the most liked post on the CapFriendly forums to ever exist. I appreciate the competition <a href="/users/A_K" target="_blank">@A_K</a>, but any artwork related to the V1 return of Mr Cap will always be superior to everything else.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drewjenks</b></div><div><strong>"Carcone was a good AHL player but had no NHL potential and took up space from Utica Comets rookies".</strong>
Please explain how you <strong>know</strong> that a 22 year old with 17 points in 20 AHL games has <strong>no NHL potential ?</strong>
Especially since he has drastically out-played: <strong>Jonah Gadjovich, Kole Lind, Brendan Gaunce, Jonathan Dahlén and Petrus Palmu</strong> this year...</div></div>
First of all, Dahlen has been immense for Utica and in no ways has been outplayed by someone who’s been in the AHL for quite a few years.
It is also unfair to state the claim that Carcone outplays the rookies. They’re rookies for a reason. Michael Carcone is 22 years old and has several years of professional experience over these guys, so it’s quite obvious he gets more playing time and produces more.
As for his potential, perhaps a more articulate way to say what I meant was he had no future in Vancouver. Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Goldobin, Baertschi, Gaudette, Virtanen are 7 building blocks of the future currently on the roster. Eriksson, Beagle, Sutter, Roussel are veterans locked up on multi-year contracts. Dahlen is a lock to be with the team soon, and then many other prospects have a lot of NHL potential including Kole Lind, Jonah Gadjovich, Petrus Palmu, Lukas Jasek, etcetera. Please tell me where Carcone fits in here?
PS: Brendan Gaunce is worth absolutely nothing, not sure why he’s even mentioned
