But in this case, I really think that he is the most suitable leader. Despite his age.
That's just one of the many things that make him a special player, hes been named captain at an early age at every level and excelled. I always thought O'Reilly put to much pressure on himself without the C, I could only imagine how much pressure he would put on himself with it.

Like another poster said, he was pretty much born with a C on his chest. I was wondering if they might do this in the case that he would be captain next year, because he falls in line with a young captain like Toews.

I think Crosby was kind of a "Star player" move but guys like Toews and Landeskog actually deserve to be among the youngest captains in NHL history.
