I think people are getting too twisted up about this.

From what I can decipher, Wanye is merely stating that Horcoff recommended Gagner for captain. Historically the recommendation is accepted as the next captain (Smith begat Moreau, Moreau begat Horcoff). He is basing this off the assumption that this trend will continue, which may or may not happen.

Second, we really don't have any idea what the dressing room is like. We have no idea who is saying what. We can judge on-ice performance all we want, but for all we know Hall could be the guy that just mopes around the dressing room after losses. We simply don't know. So for us to sit on computers and state who would be a better captain is comedic at best.

So before the pitchforks come out, how about we at the very least wait until a captain is named. Although I understand that can be difficult with the only other Oilers' news being Omark.
