Those likely injuries will also be a good chance to get a look at Nemeth or Oleksiak (in that order and assuming that Dillon makes the roster out of camp).
I just don't see the downside here.
I appreciate that you're coming at the problem from a different angle, but Souray as captain? You said it yourself, he will incur injuries. After just going through a season with a partially absentee captain I'd think that's something that you don't want to set yourself up to have happen. I don't have any confidence in Souray to stay on the ice. No one leads from the pressbox.
Then again the whole thing seems unnecessary to me since I believe that Loui is the logical choice to be captain.
