To me, I'm not sure if he's playing the way he should be, or leading the way he should be, with the 'C' on. I think perhaps this another case of the 'C' taking away from a player. I doubt Alfy would ever give it up but after 6 years as captain, he needs to really think about it.
Redden, Chara, Phillips or Fisher all deserve to captain this time. Fisher is a bit young though. I think Chara should seriously be considered because this guy has given everything he's had this year, including every playoff game.
