What's the point in naming Sullivan captain when he's got a year left? This is Weber's team, he's the leader on and off the ice...no more one or two year stop gaps. Look at the Hurricanes when Staal was given the captaincy and it was taken from Brind'Amour.
Id be fine with Sully if we knew he was gonna be around for a little while. He has stated himself that he is running out of time and wants a shot at the Cup. If we arent in it for real he is gonna want to bail for a contender.
Ill be highly surprised if Weber is not given the C. But I wont be upset if it goes to Suter! But I just dont see that happening. If Weber is named C, I will be very happy and that would probably mean an extension is going to happen.
I come in peace. Glad to see Webber got the C. He's punctual, coherent during interviews, and respected by just about everyone. Pretty much everything you expect from a leader. Good move for the preds. Your team is going to be fun to watch this year. Grats Shea.
My runner-up would have been Steve Sulli, but I could only assume they wanted someone younger so he can grow with the core group.
