Hall plays with an intense emotion, he's an emotional player. I LOVE that about him. I don't want to curb that emotion in any way by sticking a "C" on his chest. He plays with an edge and in my mind for him to be the captain he would have to back off that edge a step.

In my opinion, we need Hall going flat out doing what he does best and not worrying about motivating other people.

It's kind of why I was leaning more on Eberle at being the captain because it seems like he has more of that "intellectual" mentality rather than "physical" or "brute" playing style that Hall has. I feel that Eberle could take on the duties as the captain and it wouldn't affect his play at all.
THIS is the truth
