some how it never came up in any report, but GM Gauthier told several of us that the Canadiens would name a captain--likely before the draft

Good news!

It's true, he told Tieman on Tuesday that a captain will be named in June/July!

He also said it's hard because this ''room'' has several captains and leaders.

Possibilities include:

Markov
Gionta
Cammalleri
UFA or traded player (example: Lecavalier)

Awesome news.

Saint Patrick 02-12-2010 01:06 PM

Cammy for Captain.

YMCMBeaulieu 02-12-2010 01:09 PM

July 1st re-sign Markov to an 8 year contract, July 2nd name him captain. :)

KuleminFan41 02-12-2010 01:11 PM

It's almost guarenteed to be Markov

I'd dig that. Wouldn't be mad if either Cammy or Gionta got it, but to me Markov is the true leader of this team. Or maybe a new challenger will appear and Gorges will get it out of nowhere.

So after years of ******** on Saku for not speaking French it seems the public will be happy with one that struggles with english. This is a funny place.

Exactly I don't understand the wait,it's like 2 weeks before the draft,someone just wins the Stanley Cup and then the Habs have named their captain for next season.

They want to keep us guessing as to which player Bettman will call up to raise the Cup.

You da man.

i wish the nhl would let them play with weapons instead of sticks

So it really means this year is really just a bump in the road and next year we will start trying? Hmm.

schumway2 02-12-2010 01:54 PM

Why does everyone think if the Canadiens got Lecavalier he would automatically be named captain? What has he shown in his career that makes him qualified to assume that role? No offence to him but I don't see him as a captain at all. He wasn't a leader when the Lightning won the cup and I still consider St.Louis more of a leader in that room than Lecavalier. His personality doesn't say natural born leader to me.

Why does a captain have to mean you aren't trying?

It just means they wanted to evaluate who really merited the C, and they didnt want to rush the decision.

Did Engels say that? Because if he did, how can we take what he's saying seriously? lol
