He will get run out of town just like Horcoff....and Moreau....and Smith. Or he will hit the market after his contract. It would be nice to have a Captain for once that will wear the C long term but I guess thats not the Oiler way.
Here is your fun fact for the day...besides Doug Weights 2 years as Captain, the Oilers have not had a Captain top more than 38 points in a season since 1991.
The difference between Horcoff and Moreau vs Gagner is Gagner always holds himself accountable. None of the "well the D coverage could've been better" or "the team took too many penalties [when Moreau was too busy slashing others]" so I don't see how Gagner is a bad choice.
Hall ideally because he can always lead by example on the ice [Gagner could but doesn't leave that big of an impression relative to Hall]
