Re-pick your Captain of your team.
 
If you could re-pick your current captain of your team, who would it be and why?

Keep Backes as captain, at first I didn't believe he was the right one to be the leader, over the years he has shown alot either by fighting,hitting,scoring, etc..

Chara, because best player, leader, on the ice all game, monster

Vankiller Whale 02-01-2013 09:39 AM

No one really stands out as "Captain" material on the Canucks. Henrik's been fine though, I think I'll leave it with him for lack of any obvious choices.

The Podium 02-01-2013 09:44 AM

I like Dion but Lupul seems like the teams leader

Kiss My Rask 02-01-2013 09:46 AM

Chara

If it has to be someone else, Bergeron

Dwight 02-01-2013 09:46 AM

Gionta's a fine captain. only other guy I'd consider giving it to would be Gorges.

For as little as you can know about captain's in the NHL and their role in the lockeroom, it's pretty well established that Brenden Morrow is a "quiet" leader. And now that he's not leading on the ice, it's time to get rid of him.

There's two in Dallas who I'd pick, either Jamie Benn or Trevor Daley.

JesusBouillon 02-01-2013 09:46 AM

Gorges I guess, or Subban just to troll the NHL.

habs03 02-01-2013 09:47 AM

For the Habs Gionta has been a good captain, don't think he is a big loud speaker in the room, but lets his play do the talking. Very underrated, even by some hab fans. But I think when his contract us up after next offseason, I doubt Gionta is going to be re-signed, and no doubt in anyone mind that Gorges is going to be the next captain of the habs.

Penny Lane 02-01-2013 09:47 AM

I refuse.

Wamsutta 02-01-2013 09:52 AM

I wouldn't. The Rangers don't have anyone more worthy of the C than Callahan. Maybe I'd say otherwise if goaltenders were allowed to be the Captain (and I don't mean that bootleg "C on the mask" thing Vancouver pulled, either). I'm good with things as they are.

Jee 02-01-2013 09:53 AM

Gionta or Gorges.

The Phil 02-01-2013 09:54 AM

Ideally Phaneuf wouldn't have the C, but I can't even think of anyone else I'd give it to.

theicebox 02-01-2013 09:56 AM

Joe Vitale. The 'C' stands for Champion.

White Goodman 02-01-2013 09:57 AM

Yashin.

TheStranger 02-01-2013 09:58 AM

Ryan O'Reilly :help:

19NYSports91 02-01-2013 10:06 AM

John Tavares

He will be once Streit is gone.

BarneyStinson 02-01-2013 10:19 AM

Lupul

I doubt very many Rangers fans would change our captain right now.

number72 02-01-2013 10:28 AM

I would make Kessel captain and send Phaneuf back to the AHL to learn how to play defence

Not a Bruins fan but I fully agree. Seems like the obvious choice for the entire NHL.

Brewsky 02-01-2013 10:33 AM

I'd have it so the Leafs didn't have a captain, cause the current one is not...captain material.

Melnyks Mirage 02-01-2013 10:35 AM

Alfire is fine. When we were running him out of town Fisher or Kelly would have been nice, and would have liked either of them as successor.

At the moment it looks like Giggles gets the "C" when Alfie goes, would like on Smith, Condra, one of those lower-end, tough, hard working guys that don't have a ton of skill but just work work work work work work each night.

Dolph Ziggler 02-01-2013 10:38 AM

Nobody else on the Blues I would choose as captain over David Backes.
