I don't understand why people think it would be a better idea to give the C to Giroux than to a proven leader like Timonen. Again, not a knock on Giroux, but if you want to give the C to the team leader, wouldn't you give it to the team leader? Unless Giroux really is that guy (which I suppose he very well may be, I just would be surprised if that were the case), the C should go to Timonen before anyone else.
In a nutshell, the C should be worn by the best leader. The guy who the other guys come to with problems, issues, questions, other leadership related things, etc. If that is Giroux, then ok. If it isn't, give to whomever that is (my guess is that person is Timonen, Briere, or Talbot (and maybe Hartnell)). It should not be given to the guy the organization WANTS to be the best leader.
