Soooo

In my locked thread: "Farewell to our Captain" I stated that there will be no season, and our Cpt. had maybe played his final game as a Flame. Well I think the drop dead date is still Feb 16 before they cancel the season.

I know people will bash this thread, like they did the previous one, an maybe close it again. But my question remains: if Iggy is gone next season, who becomes our Captain?

I say Gio. Because I cannot see anyone else. Cammy? Tangs? J-Bo?

With all the legalities involved and the possibility of govt. intervention, maybe we will be lucky and see a season salvaged. But it isn't likely. I hope I am wrong, but I have a strong sense that this labour dispute is unlike anything pro sports have seen.

Anyway, next captain?

If Iggy is gone I would think Cammy would be the captain from what I have read Gio is quiet off the ice and I think a more vocal leader is what we need so I think Cammy is the guy. That being said I wouldn't be surprised if we had no captain for a year aswell.

IF Jarome doesn't resign I would think Cammy. He is vocal, experience, great play, swagger, team player, etc.

I would want Gio, Tangs, and GlenX wearing the A.

Yea I'm tossed between Gio and Cammy.

I'd be happy with either.

First of all, that wasn't your question in your original thread. You made a STATEMENT that Iginla would walk and that is why your received backlash. Revisionist history going on here...

Now lets say he does walk. I see two legitimate options:

1. Giordano, proved to be a leader, fan favorite. Seems like a perfect fit.

2. Cammy. Has also been proved to be a leader (playoffs) and is once again a fan favorite.

I would guess Gio, but i'd prefer Cammy myself. Suck thats we may lose the whole season. I still don't see Iginla walking. At very worst, I can see a sign and trade.

Most likely, there won't be a captain for a short period of time, say a season, if Iginla walks or is traded. After that, it depends on the direction the teams goes and whether or not guys like Cammalleri and Giordano stick around or are traded away.

He has not played his last game as a flame, he will atleast sign for one more year at worst before walking away to free agency and giving the flames nothing in return.

Really? Wait are you the poster who thinks he is overrated and only a 2nd line player?

Leadership experience. Proven winner. Young, but not inexperienced.

Not sure if serious. Hasn't even played a game yet as a Flame, and in this hypothetical, we are picking a new captain at the start of the season.

Come on, it was obviously a joke. Would be pretty funny though.

I would be interested to see where that picture was taken...
