The notion of some rotational nonsense just continues the drifting, meandering path of this sorry franchise. If JJ is a lousy Captain, then take it away.
Umberger as a Captain? Is anyone really serious about this? Umgarbage took the money and ran last year.
His play was beneath lackluster save for a meaningless late season surge. His 12 PIM should have earned him the Blue Jacket Ice Capade of the Year honors.
Richards ought to just make Johnson the Captain and run with him. Why make Prospal a one year Captain? What's the point of that. This is a made over team and the core for years to come is in place. JJ is part of the future; Prospal is not. Vinnie with an "A" makes perfect sense, however. Perhaps rotate the other "A" among Dorsett and others given the number of new players on the squad.
I don't think Umberger was dogging it, he had a slump. It happens in sports. I don't know if RJ gets the C, but he is a serious candidate
