If DD has a great season (whenever we will see one) and Brian either retires due to injuries or is traded, he would be my first candidate for the job. But he still has to prove he can be a top center in the NHL.

I'm sure Gally has the potential for the role but he will have to find what his role will be in the NHL and before that happens he has one big obstacle to counter that is how will he deal with Montreal's nightlife and the responsibilities that comes with playing for the team that is the beacon of hockey success in history.

Gabriel Landeskog

"Move over Sidney Crosby.

The Colorado Avalanche made NHL history on Tuesday afternoon in naming Swedish teenager Gabriel Landeskog as the organizationís fourth captain, putting what was the youngest franchise in the league last season in the hands of the youngest captain ever." Globe and Mail
