I believe it will be Vinny even though he's only been with the club for a while. He is the kind of player who never gets old. He's always positive and uplifting. After watching interviews with teammates, everyone loves having him around. He can also mentor some younger guys like Johansen, Atkinson, and Kubalik.
As the alternates I think JJ, Wiz, RJ, Aucoin.
JJ because he will most likely be the captain eventually so might as well train him until that point.
Wiz because he has knowledge of the game and grit. He is the kind of guy who will give good advice to other players and they will most likely listen.
RJ because he knows the organization well enough and can show the new guys around.
Aucoin because he is mainly here for mentoring the young d-men. Murray, Erixon, Moore, Savard, etc. well definitely learn from his years around the league. He is also a good leader.
Other Notables: Dubinsky, MacKenzie, Dorsett, Tyutin

A: James Wisniewski
