Of course, they are also a status thing, but you'll notice that they don't go to guys who can't speak english.
At the risk of sounding of biased toward English speaking players is there something wrong w/ that? If all the refs only speak English then why not have all of your captains be English speaking players? But, if the refs have the respect for the player complaining the call what's wrong w/ that? There's only 3 captains and most teams have 4 lines so somebody has to have the ear of the ref when all 3 captains are off the ice.
Also, how many teams have the C, A, and A on different lines?
