Plus he has captained Team Russia before in the WC's I believe.

I don't think so. Hecht is already retired from the national team and won't ever play for Germany again. And I'm also not sure that either of Seidenberg or Ehrhoff will be wearing the C. They are without a doubt our best players, but I would expect guys like Marcel Goc or Kai Hospelt the more likely candidates to captain the team.
But if it were one of Ehrhoff and Seidenberg I would expect it to be Ehrhoff rather than Seidenberg.

USA - (C) Callahan (A) Backes, Parise
Canada - (C) Weber (A) Crosby, Toews
Sweden - (C) Sedin (A) Sedin, Kronwall
Finland - (C) Koivu (A) Timonen, Filppula
Russia - (C) Gonchar? Morozov? (A) Datsyuk, Ovechkin/Kovalchuk/Malkin
Czech - (C) Jagr (A) Elias, Plekanec
Slovaks - (C) Chara, (A) Visnovsky, Hossa?
Swiss - (C) Streit (A) Sbisa, Pluss?
Germans - (C) Seidenberg (A) Felski, Hecht

Those seem reasonable. Russia and Canada are teh toughest, and USA could go to about 4 different guys. Usually these tend to go to the vets unless there is a player who is clearly a step above the rest. Russian really perplexes me. Don't seem to have any natural leaders worthy of the 'C'. Lot's of 'A' caliber players though.

I'm pretty sure Kovalchuk wears the C.

Morozov won't fit in anymore as there are young Russians that take his place. Kovy will be like the most experienced player in the team with his natural leadership.

its not Keslers fault he isnt a captain in Vancouver...dudes have been there longer then him.

Brown is a captain in LA and has been for a while now. not sure Callahan makes it as captain when he is one of the guys fighting for a spot on the team.
Callahan is a lock.

Lots of candidates for Team USA but I'd think it would be Parise or Callahan. Brown and Backes also in the mix. Suter and JJ on defense in the mix for letters, not the C, too.
