I don't really understand what the big deal is with talking about talking away his captaincy. He came in here as a UFA and was immediately given the C. It's not exactly like he's earned it or anything. Personally, I think it's a new era in Montreal, new coaches, management, etc., and with it should come a captain who properly represents this era. Gionta is part of an old regime and he's really not giving his all on the ice. I'd give the C to Gorges or Plekanec, two guys who have been here longer and whom are much more part of the team going forward. Surely Gionta is gone at the end of next year, so i fully expect the unveiling of a new captain sometime at the beginning of next season.
