Blues Captains - History Lesson

Upon hearing that Eric Brewer had been named the 19th Captain in team history, it got me wondering how many of the 19 I could name. I could look it up but thought it would be more fun to come up with the list as a board. Started following the Blues in the early 80's, so my guess is I'm forgetting several in the early expansion years:

Barclay Plager
Red Berenson
Gary Unger
Brian Sutter
Bernie Federko
Rob Ramage - I think, not certain on this one
Scott Stevens - pretty sure he wore it the year that he was here
Brett Hull
Shayne Corson - weird one. Didn't Keenan strip Hull of the 'C' and give it to Corson?
Wayne Gretzky
Chris Pronger
Al MacInnis
Dallas Drake
Eric Brewer

So that's 14 of 19. I'm likely leaving out an obvious one or two and not 100% sure on Ramage. Help me fill in the gaps (without looking it up).

Garth Butcher was certainly captain in the early 90s. Not sure, but was Rick Maegher not the captain at one point too?

You sure aren't very good at reading are you? When you learn to read correctly I may take you advice but until then, I'll keep making you look dumb (although it isn't very difficult).
