Will the Flyers continue without a captain?

The general consensus seems to be that Pronger will not play this year. With that being said, should the Flyers name another Captain or just continue with their Alternates? If they do choose to name a successor, who should it be? Kimmo? Briere? Giroux? Hartnell?

Honestly don't think it matters..especially if they get Weber. If they got Doan as well by some miracle..um yeah they can give the C to one of the ice girls and it won't make a difference.

I'd love for Kimmo to get it if the C is given out this year.

To be fair, most players were hurt before we gave them the C. So it's not so bad.

No! This team needs a Captain, with Pronger out on LTIR Flyers need to assign the C to someone.

The only problem I see with giving it to Timonen is that he could easily retire after this season ... especially if the C is cursed and he gets injured. Maybe Weber should get it, 14 years of having only 1 captain sounds great as long as they don't trade him a few years into the deal.

Tough situation. I don't want Giroux to get it and I'm not sure Kimmo is captain material, alternate for sure but to be THE guy. Weber, if he comes here, maybe but he's also been a captain in a small market, could he or would he want to deal with everything that comes with a new team as well as the captaincy? Same goes for Doan, and I don't think Briere should get it since he was getting benched at times and doesn't hustle all the time. I think they should just stick with As till we know if Pronger will return, or till Giroux is a bit older.

Give it to Kimmo for his final year and evaluate the situation after that. The captaincy is overrated.

Since Briere has a couple more seasons in him than Kimmo, I'd opt for him and keep G as an "A".

Just don't give it to G. I'd be happy with one of Kimmo, Briere, Hartnell or Talbot.
