Do you think that will actually happen, though?
Having a young captain seems to be the trend with rebuilding/retooling teams and JJ really fits the bill. I know I just used this as a comparison, but this situation reminds me completely of when Dion Phaneuf arrived in Toronto. He immediately took a leadership role in the dressing room and on the ice and was named captain before the next season starts. There were some Leafs fans who thought that it should be Kaberle as he was a veteran, but management went with Phaneuf instead.
I really think it will be Jack Johnson. He's taken a leadership role with the national team and with what he's been saying and how he played in Columbus he seems ready to embrace the role.
