The players know each other better than anyone on this forum.

For all we know, Taylor Hall may have privately turned down the captaincy or suggested Gagner instead.

The venom in this thread is ridiculous and the people posting without any sort of valid point should be ashamed of themselves.

"Sam Tebow" my behind.
The captain doesn't have to be the best player on the team but he has to be a high end player that is part of the core.

Dustin Brown is one of the best two-way players in the NHL, has played in an all-star game, and is a fixture on the US Olympic team.

Sam Gagner is the sixth best offensive forward on his team. He is one of the worst defensive forwards on his team. He has never been invited to an all-star game. He hasn't been invited to represent Canada at the World Championships since 2008 (where he was a healthy scratch). He isn't part of the Oilers' core.
