For next captain, I'm divided between these two options:
1. Pleks. Yes, he's our best all-around skater. He's a veteran who has lead this team offensively for a long time now. A life-long Hab to boot.
2. Markov. Another life-long Hab. Also a core guy for us, at least for another year or two. With Markov, my thinking is he'd be a good placeholder of the Captaincy until Galchenyuk is ready.
Keep in mind that if you take the C away from a guy that's not leaving the team (either due to trade, free agency, or retirement), this can cause a major media hoopla and be a distraction for the team. So choose wisely.
As for Gorges, I think he's actually
opinionated to be the Captain. Your team's captain should be someone that brings the full team together, not someone who the locker-room is probably a bit divided over.
