Wow people are really campaigning hard for Gorges. I'm sorry I don't get it.
Markov is captain, Gio and Cammy are the As
If you don't get it you must not watch very many of the games. He is at all times the hardest working player on the ice. He bleeds bleu blanc rouge, he's a leader in the room, he's good in front of the media, and he's really becoming a great shutdown D. Gionta would be a good choice too. Markov barely speaks, Martin has even said that Markov never speaks in the room. He may lead by example but he's not the guy who'll make a speech in the room in game 7 when you're down 3-1 after 2, Gorges is.
Give the C to the guy who'll be able to handle it. Now they know better than us. But I don't see Markov facing the media every day, maybe ask why he didn't take french course and alienate the guy as much as we can.
Give it to Gionta. He just came in. Didn't have time to learn the language. Will say Merci and Bonjour till the end of his tenure as C. And don't mind talking every day. Let Markov play his game.
I think Gionta,Markov and Cammalleri would all be good choices. My pick would be Gorges for a few reasons. The first would be after taking that hard one-timer in the back of the head by Green and seeing the blood run down his neck. If I remember right the very next day he was the very first hab on the ice for morning practise. The second was his confrontation with Crosby at the end of one of the playoff games last year. I really like how he handled that situation. I also look forword to his postgame interviews win or lose he there to face the media and does it well.
