Not saying Callahan wouldn't make a good captain but I like the idea of having a defenseman wearing the C... Staal is also Canadian and they make better captains for whatever reason, IMO.

With that said, if Drury is not the Captain next year, I think they will give it to Callahan.
You and I sing the same note here. I dont know why Staal doesnt get more love as potential captain. Heres something to consider as well: Staal will be on the ice for lets say 20-24 minutes a game, where Cally will get around 17-20. Not like thats a huge diff in TOI, but its still more presence on the ice. Also, again my .02.
