Re-pick your Captain of your team.

If you could re-pick your current captain of your team, who would it be and why?

Keep Backes as captain, at first I didn't believe he was the right one to be the leader, over the years he has shown alot either by fighting,hitting,scoring, etc..

No one really stands out as "Captain" material on the Canucks. Henrik's been fine though, I think I'll leave it with him for lack of any obvious choices.

I like Dion but Lupul seems like the teams leader

If it has to be someone else, Bergeron

Gionta's a fine captain. only other guy I'd consider giving it to would be Gorges.

For as little as you can know about captain's in the NHL and their role in the lockeroom, it's pretty well established that Brenden Morrow is a "quiet" leader. And now that he's not leading on the ice, it's time to get rid of him.

There's two in Dallas who I'd pick, either Jamie Benn or Trevor Daley.

Gorges I guess, or Subban just to troll the NHL.

For the Habs Gionta has been a good captain, don't think he is a big loud speaker in the room, but lets his play do the talking. Very underrated, even by some hab fans. But I think when his contract us up after next offseason, I doubt Gionta is going to be re-signed, and no doubt in anyone mind that Gorges is going to be the next captain of the habs.

I wouldn't. The Rangers don't have anyone more worthy of the C than Callahan. Maybe I'd say otherwise if goaltenders were allowed to be the Captain (and I don't mean that bootleg "C on the mask" thing Vancouver pulled, either). I'm good with things as they are.

Ideally Phaneuf wouldn't have the C, but I can't even think of anyone else I'd give it to.

I doubt very many Rangers fans would change our captain right now.

I would make Kessel captain and send Phaneuf back to the AHL to learn how to play defence

Not a Bruins fan but I fully agree. Seems like the obvious choice for the entire NHL.

I'd have it so the Leafs didn't have a captain, cause the current one is not...captain material.

Alfire is fine. When we were running him out of town Fisher or Kelly would have been nice, and would have liked either of them as successor.

At the moment it looks like Giggles gets the "C" when Alfie goes, would like on Smith, Condra, one of those lower-end, tough, hard working guys that don't have a ton of skill but just work work work work work work each night.

Nobody else on the Blues I would choose as captain over David Backes.
