They won't give Gabby the A until the start of next season, considering he is in his first year of a big contract.
This way you inspire/give a player something to look forward at the beginning of the season; a fresh start, so to speak.
If you give Gabby an A or C right now it looks bad. That kind of responsibility could have a subsequent psychological effect on a player. It might interfere with a players motivation.
Take Drury for instance. He was offered a guaranteed contract with $ and years + NMC and captaincy. Its like he was already given the world before he even stepped on the ice. Why should he care about anything else at this point?
Besides, Hank is the backbone of our team. If anyone deserves to wear the C its him.
