Anyone know what he was saying? Maybe the radio version didnt cut it out?

Updated: He said S hit. and when they hit the button the FCC automatically kills the call. Damn i was hoping for something more.

I'm pretty fine with G as a captain. As someone mentionned rightfully, he's already acting as one, on and off the ice. This team is his.

Hey, I didn't start this "he" didn't get it done crap. I don't want Giroux as captain, I just want him to worry about playing.

I'd rather they wait a few more years before giving it to Giroux.

Giroux has already played like the captain, acted like the captain, and been treated like the captain. I don't mind seeing him get it already. The captaincy is overrated anyway.

Giving him the C is just a formality. He's already the teams leader and already acts that way. Stop with the superstitions! Richards was always introverted. He was given the C, Giroux is taking it

Pretty much these.

G was the unquestioned heart & soul of the team last year after Pronger went down. It was his team, and WILL be his team.

I'm waiting on buying a jersey to see if he really does become captain.

I wonder if L Schenn has a strong year if he will get some Captain talk. That has always been a trait associated with him when be described by the media.

Kimmo is the type to not give a F@@@ what is on his jersey he will speak his mind and confront any teammate at any time. Briere Too.


That being said I think it will be wise to Give it to G with those two around in order to groom him a bit.

I still think Briere should be the captain, and then Giroux when Danny is gone. Danny is one of the most professional guys in the game, he's always willing to speak with the media and tells it like it is. Any young player would be wise to take a few notes from Danny Briere.

I agree it should be Briere wearing the C. Give G an A and Kimmo an A.

If Coburn was a little more consistent with his play, he would be a shoe in for the captaincy. He's been here the longest and is very durable. Not to mention Philly loves giving the C to d-men.

I'm going to predict Giroux is named #Flyers captain Tuesday. Heard some things today, and after thinking about it, it all makes sense.

It should end up being Giroux or Hartnell. Briere has two years left and Timonen might be gone after this season. Where as Hartnell is here for another 6 years and Giroux will be here longer than that.

If he get's a C, how long do you think it would take for stores to have Giroux jerseys with a C on them?

Despite speculation to the contrary, I can confirm that there will be no announcement of a new captain for the #Flyers today. #NHL

So he's not being named captain...but he's being named captain.

He's not being named captain today, but he is being named captain at some unspecified point in the near future (Thursday?).

That seems the crux of the reports, right?
