The exception would be the recently acquired dominant superstar (like Gretzky at the time)
It's also helpful if the Captain and the Coach are on the same page.
If Norstrom were to leave (and using this criteria), the logical choice would be....
Derek Armstrong has always been a fringe player. And because of injuries he's probably lucky he even played for the Kings, in the 02-03 season. Based on your criteria, Klatt would be the logical choice since Armstrong who I never recall wearing the A and hasnt really been in the NHL for a few years. Plus Klatt is more leadership material. He is on the board with the NHLPA, plus didnt he get unsung hero last year? I know Army got it the year prior or something like that.
