The moment this kid was drafted I wanted him wearing the C for the avalanche. Being in Ottawa, there was so much attention on him because at the time, Ottawa could have gotten him (theyre pick slipped and they chose too late obviously). He was always slated as a mature leader and I've always loved Swedish Captains (Lidstrom, Alfy, Sundin, Sedin). They saw him taking the torch from Alfy a few years down the road.
Was it early? yes. But this was their guy. They knew it. May as well go through the formalities and make him captain. Mark my word: this kid will never be traded. He'll be/ already is a great leader.
