If the whole point of being the Oilers captain is to be the fans/media whipping boy, then by all means give it to Gagner. Regardless of there being a letter on his sweater or not he will be the #1 target of the media/fans.

To me this is Halls team. First ever 1st overall pick in team history, leads by example and has reminded people of Messier since his junior days. He's also signed long term and seems to really enjoy playing for Edmonton.

Hall - C
Eberle- A (away)
Gagner- A (home)
Smid - A (away)
Ference - A (home)

I know that Smyth deserves a letter but I can't see him playing over 60 games this year.
