1 - What would be the downside risks of moving the C to another player, such as Briere or Pronger?
2- What has Richards done
as captain of this Flyer team
that shows that he, above all other possible candidates, is the best one for that role?
3- Is Richards just entitled to keep the C forever? Even if more dynamic leaders emerge in the future (perhaps Giroux someday)?
Can anyone chime in on these with objective and thoughtful answers?
Thanks in advance.
