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.
Changing your captain because the team is playing better than expected, is
a very creative move. But then given you creativity with " facts ", I guess it
just comes natural.
