The situation in Vancouver is particularly interesting in regards to the Naslund/Linden debate.

Well Naslund may not be the most vocal of Captain's, it is widely accepted that he is the best player to wear the C. Even over Linden, who is probably the most beloved athlete the city has EVER seen.

I wouldn't want anyone but Naslund to have the captaincy. He has risen with this team and though he is not the loudest guy or most physically dominant, he controls the team with a quiet confidence and undeniable skill that demands respect and gives the Canucks one of (if not THE) best dressing room chemistry in the league.

I wouldn't change a thing...though we do have a few other players who could take over the captaincy in a worst case scenario. Linden, Jovo, and Ohlund stand out as potential 'C' candidates...with Linden obviously the frontrunner.
