This is how I see it.....
Callahan is a lock for Captain.
Richards will get one of the Alternate Captain posts. There has to be someone from that top line with a letter. Richards would be the obvious choice over Gaborik and Wolski/Dubinsky, given his history with Torts and track record of leadership.
Staal will get the other Alternate Captain spot. Our defensive corps needs someone with a letter, and Staal is the obvious choice given that he had an A last year.
The two locks in my opinion are Callahan and Staal. They both had letters last year, so they're not going to be stripped of them for no reason. Drury leaving opened up a slot, so I only really see one letter being in play. I think it will go to Richards, but I would honestly not be surprised to see it go to Girardi either. On merit alone, Girardi probably deserves a letter more than anyone else not named Callahan or Staal. The dude is a warrior night in and night out.
