He's a good soldier. Will never be a captain due to the role he has and will ever have on the ice.

MaxPac will be captain before Gorges will ever be.

The captain doesn't have to be the best/most skilled player.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic.


Josh Gorges was the captain of 2003-2004 Kelowna Rockets that won Memorial Cup!

If this had been brought up a year ago, I would have agreed 100% but now it's a different story. This is not a knock against Gorges, I love the guy and I'd love to see him with the team in the long run and I think he will be, but not as captain.

I think the next captain of Les Glorieux will be none other than that American youngster. You know, the guy who came back from a gruesome injury at the hands of Zdeno Chara, the guy who's leading the team in points, the guy who battles hard day-in day-out regardless of what the scoreboard says. That Max Pacioretty guy.

One of the arguments one could use against him being captain would probably be his maturity level. Now, maybe this is just me, but I think think he's matured a great deal since the night of March 8th, 2011. At first, Max was not at all ready to accept Chara's apology, and I don't really blame him, but he came around and he accepted it like an adult, not like the kid he once was. I also have a feeling that him being around Erik Cole can only help his maturation process as Cole is a guy who went through a similar ordeal, having broken his neck in 2006.

Either way, the leadership within the organization is in great shape. Not matter who gets named the next captain, be it Gorges, or Pacioretty, or Subban, or Eller, the leadership depth is unreal and I'll be happy with choice the organization makes because with those four you just can't go wrong

Bud, get your facts straight before accusing someone else.

I am big fan of Vancouver Giants and WHL. Back then, I had no choice but to watch Gorges and Kelowna Rockets playing against the Giants all the time . They did win the Memorial Cup, being the host!

Josh was captain of the 2004 Kelowna Rockets Memorial Cup championship team. Winning the CHL championship on home ice still remains as one of the biggest highlights of his career to date. In the same season as his Memorial Cup victory, Josh also brought home a silver medal from the World Junior Hockey Championships where he notched three points in six games.

Vancouver homer twisting facts

I'll make sure I use next time around.

P.S.: sorry to break all the fun, "bud", but it's a running joke 'round here.

Born in Kelowna, B.C., Gorges was fortunate to play his junior hockey for his hometown team, the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL. Gorges spent 4 years there, captaining his team to a Memorial Cup Championship in his final season in 2004. The fact that Gorges was a captain in juniors has led to a popular internet meme on hockey discussion board HFBoards which has users reply to poor questions or irrelevant threads by asking “Did you know Josh Gorges was the captain of the Kelowna Rockets?”
So...

“Did you know Josh Gorges was the captain of the Kelowna Rockets?”







(Personally? I still think it's an elaborate lie created by the government. Mulder told me.)
