In a few years, the obvious choice to me would be Galchenyuk. Smart, respectful, mature beyond his years with a great work ethic and game breaking ability. I don't care who captains the team now. All I want is this guy with the C in 2-3 years.

I also agree with the poster who said the vets might not embrace PK's new status with the team. A brash and exuberant personality like his could create friction with the older leaders. He wouldn't be a bad choice per se, just a risky one.

My choice: extend Gionta for 2 years in a reduced role, at a reduced salary, and in two years the captain dilemma will sort itself out more naturally IMO.
