One things for sure is that Phillips will be captain as soon as Alfie retires. At least, I feel that's a sure thing.
I think you'd probably be in the minority with that opinion. I think there's a much bigger feeling that Spezza will get the C when Alfie retires. Philly is fine with an A. It's just like Neil will probably never be a full time assistant captain for this team but there's no denying that he is one of the main leaders on this team
