I guarantee the organization would recognize the leadership that Phillips has brought to the team for so many years and take notice of his tenure in Ottawa. Spezza will be captain (assuming he's here to stay for the long run) but it will be after Phillips.

I really don't see the organization ignoring the guy who's been an assistant captain for how many seasons now?

EDIT: Just saw danishh's post. 100% agree. I could see the team going to no captain route for a bit. However, I don't see Spezza taking captain over Phillips. Not a chance.
