Id like to see Richie and Pronger share the C like Drury and Briere did in Buffalo, that way Richie still is captain, yet pronger has some control too, AND CAN MENTOR HIM. IT really would be a benefit for Richards in the long run

All over the radio They are talking about pulling it and pronger will be named captain. Eskin sucks in many ways, but he does have the inside sources

Same can be done with Richie wearing an A. He deserves a lot credit for realizing what the situation is and doing something about it, if the rumors are true.

They act like they're playing basketball, where only the last two minutes of the game are important.

Richards is Captain.

Pronger is his Alternate, but also his mentor.

Pronger needs to teach Richards a lesson right now, not let Richards just give up.

If Richards gives up his captaincy, I will actually lose respect for him. He has been given this team, whether he is ready or not, he needs to grab it by the horns and show everyone what he has got.

If this story ends up being true, or if Richards ever ends up "resigning" his captaincy then he'll be a bigger nancy than Sidney Crosby and we'll never hear the end of it from Penguin fans and we'll deserve it.

Holmgrem backed it up and emphasized that Richards is Captain.

I have no problem with Richards and Pronger both wearing a C. I do not think it's a good idea for Richards or this team if he drops the C or has it taken from him. You have to let him and the young guys on the team save some face - if there is a rift and it is between the older and younger players.

if Pronger is ever anywhere near the captaincy of your team, you are doomed.

Just sayin'

Richards is captain. It need to be richards. He is the face of the franchise. His leadership skills are a big part in the reason he was signed to a long extension. Now is a time for a clean slate. For the flyers to start playing some god damn system hockey.

I am so excited right now. The flyers with a system in place are going to be absolutly terrifing. Give me another team that can boast
Carter = Point per game, 40 goals
Richards = point per game, 30 goals
Briere = point per game, 35 goals
Hartnell = 60 points, 30 goals
JVR = (atm) point per game, 25 goals
Giroux = (will be by the end of the season) point per game, 15 goals

Then Pronger, Carle, Kimmo when healthy, and coburn actually within a system playing defense. Man i'm stoked.

he's not ready for it, anyway, imo.

not since Pronger is here; Pronger should be captain right now.

Is there anything semi official about the captaincy? I'm guessing so far nothing has changed.
