I'm certain that Desjardines had and 'A' but for the life of me I thought BOTH Recchi and LeClair had one... My best guess, based on memory, is that Recchi had it and Johnny was the first to step up... With Weinrich down the list somewhere.
I know that Recchi didn't get the 'A' back until the season after he returned, and then I thought he kept it every game... LeClair I thought got an 'A' when Lindros left... and I believe Rico got it when he gave up the 'C' to Primeau in 2001 or so.
I also remember Kapanen having an 'A' at times... I'm wondering if there was some sort of rotation at that time, although Recchi and Rico are so clear in my memory as regulars.
I need somebody with a better memory to jog mine.
