We should not have a captain for another 2 years at least.

This isn't just another C, this is the TML, the legendary, notorious Leafs.

You can't go from having guys like Clark, Gilmour and Sundin to just another defencemen.

The player has to be a super star, has to play with heart, has to put up big numbers, has to be the obvious fan favourite, has to have the total respect of every player on their team, has to be a clutch performer, and if Burkes system has to be able to stick up for the younge guys that join his team.

This will take time, I think Schenn can develope into that kind of guy but with lots of work. He needs to improve his game all around, clean up some corners on his D-game, maybe learn to play a little bit of O. The fans needs to change their current lust for him into a deep trust and love that can only develope over time, and every other player needs to look up to him, and that will take some time aswell.
