With that said, this is how I expect the team will run things when Alfie reitres:

C/A: Phillips
A: Spezza
A: Neil

I'm perfectly happy with that leadership group.
Well you also have to consider that it was a different coaching staff who appointed those captains. MacLean may feel that Neil is one of the more prominent leaders on this team. Neil did get to wear the A when one of the other captains were out of the lineup. And I don't think MacLean would have stripped anyone of their captaincy because he felt that another player was a better leader. So Neil not having an A may have been more of having to do with the captains being set prior to MacLean becoming coach.
