Only person who would make sense as captain if Backes was gone is Jackman. Been there a while, but still Backes deserves it.

I would give the C to Smyth for now until his contract is done.. Even if he is not producing I am sure everyone looks up to him in the dressing room..

I like Pominville as a captain. Only other choice I really see is Vanek, but, while he can take over a game in a way Pommer can't, he doesn't bring the same consistency to any aspect of the game.

Hodgson and Foligno both look like they could be letter-wearers in the future for Buffalo, but I there's no way I'd consider them for that responsibilty right now.

If Thornton went missing, I'd give it to Pavelski.

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

I also think Loui Eriksson would be a good captain.

Yes, he's very quiet and shy, but the way he plays is exemplary. Plays a fantastic two-way game, doesn't take penalties, and plays with heart.

Bieksa, always great with the media, the first(if only)to stand up for his teammates. Great work in the community and not scared to make his voice heard.

I wouldn't change Callahan. If I had to, then obviously Brad Richards. Very easy choice.

Keep Pominville, no doubt. I like Vanek having the A, but Stafford should not have the other one.
Captains should lead by example first and foremost, and Pominville is the best example of that on our team. It seems like he gets better every single year and plays the most complete game on the team by far. He is a hard worker and never takes a shift off.

Like other posters have said, I can definitely see Foligno with the C down the road, with two of Grigs, Girgs, Hodgson, or Myers getting the A's.

Lundqvist for sure would be our captain if it was really allowed other than that I could see Staal being the captain.
