I was iffy on him getting the C before the season began, but not anymore. He's really elevated his game, others look to him, and he's clearly a game changer on the ice.
Weiss being Captain prior to this season. He did, IMHO, little to earn a C except for his allegiance.. This is a different Weiss, more character and leadership then exhibited prior. Whether its due to finally having a solid team around him, or a maturing process, I don't know I'm just enjoying it.
I still believe Campbell is as good a choice as Weiss; perhaps better. nevertheless I would be very comfortable with either as a selection.
Most of all I have complete faith that Dineen, a three time captain himself, will make the right choice being in the locker room himself. I believe he is clearly leaning to Weiss. I also dont think Campbell would be offended at all
