Also, I doubt Iginla will be captain. I suspect Canada will go with skill over experience. I'd wager Crosby (if he's back and healthy) or if not, maybe Toews, Stamkos, Tavares

Backes would probably make a good captain. Other options would be Kessel, Ryan, Parise, Kesler or Suter if a defensemen.
I'm a Leaf fan, but LOL. Oh man. Kessel can't, nor will he ever be Captain of the United States Olympic National Team. I doubt he even gets the A given the other available leadership on the team. Kessel's a great player, but leadership just isn't his thing. That being said, I agree with Parise, Kesler, and Suter as being potential Captains.
