New Captains?
 
With Streit leaving I expect we'll see Tavares sporting the C on his chest next season, but who would you guys like to see wearing the next A?

I'd love to see either Martin or Hamonic wear it personally.

StrongIslanders90 06-12-2013 04:50 PM

C-Tavares
A-Okposo
A-Hamonic

PWJunior 06-12-2013 04:53 PM

I think it was already mentioned by Staple or someone else.

Tavares will get the C.

Okposo, Hamonic, Visnovsky, Nielsen with the A's.

IslesRock4 06-12-2013 04:59 PM

C - Nino
A - Donovan
A - Nelson

No? :sarcasm:

That's a lot of A's.

Yeah, I had read that Tavares will get it and the others are being considered, but I'm more curious as to who the fans would like to see wearing the letters.

The A's alternate in home and away games, thus 2 pairs needed. I think JT wore the A in home games only in 2011-2012, I could be wrong.

I'd be ok with Hammer, KO, Vis (funny how he turned out, wearing an A after all the drama), Frans.

This is what I'd want.

Hamonic + Frans home, Okie + Visno away.

JT as captain obviously.

IslesRock4 06-12-2013 05:28 PM

Okposo wore an A all year this past season. Do they really "downgrade" him and make him share an A? I don't think so. I say Vis gets the other A and Hamonic gets it in 2 years.

RichOnTheLI 06-12-2013 05:32 PM

Maybe they do the same thing like a couple of seasons ago where there are 2 sets of alternate captains for home and away games.

C - Tavares
A - Nielsen / Visnovsky
A - Okposo / Hamonic

Something like this would be more than acceptable!

IslandersFan17 06-12-2013 06:06 PM

I feel like Frans and Okposo should wear the As full time. Frans has worn it before and wore it well. As much as I like Hammer I would still go Frans. Viz as experienced as he is, after the guy tried to circumvent even being here. Yes, water under the bridge but still, the fact of the matter is, there are more deserving.

Poliz24 06-12-2013 09:41 PM

C-JT
A- Okposo
A-Hamonic OR Matty Martin-Either one would be good.

aIsle21 06-12-2013 11:00 PM

JT - C
Okposo - A
Hamonic - A
Cizikas - A

I think Cizikas has Captain like qualities.

Strome18 06-12-2013 11:11 PM

If Okie played the whole year like he did down the stretch, I would have been inclined to put a "C" on him but alas that did not happen.

I still say Matt Martin should be an "A" along with Tavares "C" and AMAC "A".

It would be great to have Hammer & Okie with A's as well but you can only have so many.

AMAC gives his body for this team in so many ways. At times more than Hammer (who I love).

JT what can you say that others have not.

Matt Martin just shoulders so much of the toughness burden on this team. He works hard on his line and hustles all the time. Classy and professional in so many ways. Plus his girlfriend is HOT. ;)

I would love to alternate away and home A's for the 4 outside of JT.

leaponover 06-12-2013 11:52 PM

The "A" isn't just about the player as it is his duties. I don't think Martin gets enough ice time to wear an A. If it were my team I would let JT decide who he thinks should wear the A. Puts ownership to if on a team level and the players have to answer to the captain as well as the coach.

If I was the captain I would want Nielsen and Hamonic wearing the A for me with a nod to Okposo if somebody can't wear it for some reason.

Without question Tavares, he has turned into a leader on this team.

bingo

Love KO, hoping he has a big season next year, he really needs it.

Tavaresfan91 06-13-2013 05:10 AM

If cizikas had more time under his belt he would give JT a run IMO, but I'm going with

C-JT
A-Okposo
A-Hammer

You want guys who will lead when things get tough ...above is very questionable

This

I had Martin before, but Okposo showed down the stretch in the season and playoffs that he should no way be stripped of Assistant Captain.

ummm what? All 3 guys stepped up when times were tough and were the main reason they made the playoffs.....

Fantom 06-13-2013 07:56 AM

I pretty much agree with pretty much everyone here.
Tavares will get a C . while is a fantastic player i do not want him to have that role. I do not know who i would name besides him though.

I think you need to name a guy who will be around for a while. So in that regard he makes the most sense.

I think this is what we will see.

JT =C
KO A
Frans A
What u want to see is this

KO= C
Frans A or the C
jt T

DarkHorse 06-13-2013 08:57 AM

I have some concerns about making JT captain. Mainly because it seems like young guys who get named captain get weighed down by the responsibility.

I would say give it to KO, but with his just turning the corner, I don't want to do that to him either.

Frans is 29, plays both sides of the puck well, seems to fit in well with the team, gets plenty of ice time and is signed for the next three years (so there's hope for stability). Plus, he'd be the first Danish NHL captain, so, history!

Nielsen - C
Home A's
JT
Hammer
Away A's
KO
AMac

I'm very confused about this as well.. I'd say KO stepped his game up the most when the going got tough.
