He's young, but there are young captains across the NHL who aren't imploding because of the C. If you have seen something that leads you to believe he is not the leader the team thinks he is, or that he doesn't have the mental capacity to handle it, please share these reasons because I certainly haven't seen anything to the contrary.
It's like Lavy said in an interview yesterday, the captaincy isnt something being THRUST upon him, it is something he has earned by the way he conducts himself and the way he leads this team on and off the ice without the C.

Timonen's opinion was that the C should go to the best player on the team and someone who will be there for a long time, and that's G.
