Gunnar I hate to break it to you, but even fellow Devils fan would probably say Richards over Parise.

I love Zach and all and I think he's an excellent player, but Richards is an all around guy and a lot feistier than Parise.

Just because there are other worthy candidates, doesn't mean he wasn't worthy of it either. It's all about leadership and obviously his leadership skills stuck out far more than his other teammates. Who cares that he's young (see Crosby, Lecavalier, etc). He obviously deserved it.

And I'm not saying Zach doesn't deserve to be Captain some day, but he's on a veteran filled team and until they're gone, he probably won't even wear an "A".
