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.
He got the C one season after coming here. After the first season, most of the players agreed to have Gionta as captain.
