C - John Tavares
A - Kyle Okposo
A - Nielsen/Hamonic/Martin 3-way race

I think the first two get full-time letters and deservedly so. I'm pretty sure I've heard that KO has become vocal in the room. I could see Vis getting an "A", but I'd rather keep it with the guys who have been here longer (most of whom will be continue to be here longer.)

If I had to whittle it down to three, I'd go with this:
C - John Tavares
A - Kyle Okposo
A - Travis Hamonic

I'd prefer they only go with three captains at this point. I don't think any player on the squad would overly complain about the above being the choices.

If we end up with alternating home and away alternate captains:
C - John Tavares
HOME A - Kyle Okposo
HOME A - Matt Martin
AWAY A - Frans Nielsen
AWAY A - Travis Hamonic

I like the idea of your captains being out there for the overwhelming majority of the game. If they're the leaders of the team, you want them out there leading by example. They're also the guys who talk to the refs without getting immediately waved away.

I guess we could see them alternate only one "A", but I think I've put enough hypotheticals into this post. Plus, you can tell how I'd work it from the first paragraph.
One day, maybe I'll learn to just post the name of three guys with some letters next to them.
