Both of those guys were just at the top of the dung pile when they got named and were well past their primes. It is time for this team to showcase it's talent to the league with a captain who is already the leader and has many prime years ahead if him.

Hall has to be the guy. It will serve notice to anyone in the league who may have had doubts, that these are not kids anymore but big time NHL players. No different than Landeskog or Tavares (soon i expect now that Streit is gone) or Stamkos or Crosby when they got named early on. It's just time to showcase the now and the possible.

Sorry, kinda homerish but whatevs.
