I think this might be a case of a blogger getting wind of a rumour that is simply speculation and wanting to be the first one to post it.

A new coach is not going to make thus decision before camp IMHO even if he does favor a player more than another, which he has not said boo about to my knowledge.

Welcome to Edmonton coach.
Check your calendars. TC is two weeks away folks. A coach like Eakins isn't going to pull a Tambo fiddling indecision. A Captain will be stated in time for the team hitting the ice for the first time. Theres deliberate, then theres delay. The thing is the decision WOULD likely be made as of about right now.

The org is in session and already grinding out the details. Do people schools out for summer or something and they just fling the doors open in September?
