does Kessel/Beauchemin challenge Schenn for the 'C'?

I think whomever will be captain will be a person who has leadership ability and will stay in Toronto for eons, they're not just going to FLING out a C for the sake of flinging one out. If that's Beauchamin, Kessel, Komisarek or Schenn, then good on whoever wins. During the mean time, if any of them WANTS to be the captain, step up and show Ron and Brian why they deserve it. Then give it out. that's all.
Well I think a team without a captain is usually competing for a top 5 draft pick not for the Cup. A team without a captain, is a team in a state of rebuild (at best)...how many teams have done made any noise in the playoffs without a captain? Or made the playoffs? Non captained teams are non playoff teams, and Burke will no longer allow that to happen.
But I do agree, someone will have to step up to earn the "C"...it won't just be handed out like that.
