All that aside, it doesn`t contradict to anything you said.

Well it sure sounded like you did. That way or the other, what I said still needed to be said.

Everybody would be glad to have a captain for twenty years, like Toews or Doan, but that`s not the point.
so serious around here today.

What happens if you give Kovy the C and things don't work out?

He's here for the rest of his career, you can't give it to him, strip him and expect things to be okay.

Kovy is almost too passionate to deal with the refs, the other players, etc. Sal is a great choice for a "real" captain. Not just the most talented guy, but the guy who can actually fill the role.
"too passionate"? errrmmm...

Heard that argument before, it has never been proven wrong.

Captain should have a calm demeanor.

Elias seemed to be okay with it. But I don't see how we would strip it from Kovy. The only thing he cares about is winning and his teammates.

To me the captain isn't someone who talks to the refs as that adds no value, but is someone that will kick a teammate in the ass if they aren't doing something right.

Elias went threw the exact scenario you are trying to paint and he's the franchise's all time point producer and will most probably play his entire career with the same organisation.

Just saying

They called MacLean for some tips cause we have our eyes set on Jonathan Drouin and he said that is was a good idea.

He is the first black captain of a US-based NHL team, and only the second in league history. He is the same age as Iginla, was drafted in the same draft, and played against him in the WHL.

I know the situation, don't know if it would turn out amicably if it happened again.

Not surprised. Parise said last year that he thought Salvador would be the captain if it wasn't him.

As the coaches and Lou have said countless times, we have so many leaders on this team, the letter is just a letter

When it comes to picking a leader, you don't base it around the situation 3-4 years from now because that situation may not even be there! You make the decision that is best for your team right now
Because we basically all agree it was a good choice so we have to find something to disagree on.

Obviously there is some Euro bias on this team/management.

Especially when he spit in the face of what it meant to the organization and it's fans this summer.

Kovy's passion alone is more than enough to demonstrate leadership and ability to wear the C.
Yes. He's too polarizing to be an effective leader. He's worn the "C" but has he ever really captained a team? Truly be a veteran leader? We need a guy who will invite 18-19 year olds to stay in their house, bring them over for Christmas, and truly raise a team. Something this team has desperately been searching for since the very first little of Langs being captain and Stevens was absolutely a beast at being that guy.

Kovy needs to be Kovy on and off the ice. Being a player's captain isn't in his style.

I don't think that's the case at all. It's just that we've seen numerous coaches and captains over the last decade and some stability wouldn't hurt once in a while.

After locking up IK and Zajac to multi year deals, it would've been nice to have some stability as the leader of our club going forward, that's all.

Anyways, I won't speak for everyone but that's my reason.

I simply said it was nice to have the D wear it again. Kinda symbolizes the mantra of this team - led by solid defense first.

Yessir. We don't need him saying the wrong things to the refs all the time, and disagreeing with his teammates over stupid **** when they need to bring something to the table.

His compete level is simply too high.

Wasn't Kovy the one that bought the playoff clothing for the entire team? Kovy is the closest to Stevens as a captain this team has. I am not knocking Salvador, I just think Kovy is a great leader for this or any team.

Good pick, and any reason it's not from someone that's not on the team is nothing but hot air.
