Depends to me. If the new captain squad is named after this season(assuming Horcoff gets bought out), then I'd want someone like Smid maybe, who has already become established and understands the way things work. For the A's, Eberle and Smyth(until he retires). Everyone in the dressing room knows the type of player Hall is and sees he is passionate, and they can build off of that energy whether he has a letter or not. I just don't think he should be a full captain quite yet. Wouldn't really be mad if he was named captain though, I can definitely understand why he would be given that title.
If the new captain isn't named until after Horcoff's current contract is up, then I would definitely say Hall for captain, Eberle as an assistant, and the last spot is left up for grabs to whoever takes a leadership role a few years down the road.
