Just creating a rumor for the sake of the slow summer month.

I wouldn't believe anything is even being mentioned until training camp is finalized. Especially with a new coach.

A polarizing figure like Gagner would not appeal to the fan base and he'll be the whipping boy for another year. Remember prior to last season the guy was pretty close to being run out of town as well.

Second line center that can't win draws, is bad in his own zone and puts up points in "meaningless" games.

The safe, smart choice right now would be Eberle or Hall for Captain. The closest over/under choice Ferrence. Who knows, maybe Smid slides into an Alternate position during the Training camp as well.

Just can't see Gagner being captain, too controversial.
