A. Moreau doesn't take lots o fbad penalties. He is tough and gritty and sometimes in the corners that will lead to penalties - but he certainly hasn't taken enough bad penalties to warrent that comment (especially compared to how bad the Oilers have been).

Moreau IMO isn't the captain. BUT Smith isn't either. It is VERY VERY clear that Smytty is this teams leader - but because MacT loves the defensive minded guys he made Smith the Captian. His play has suffered since he got the "C" - and I would love to see him with an A instead. Ryan is definately ready to take over as captain, and IMO Smith won't be around after this year so he will get it - unless by some outside shot Moreau does.
