Henrik. No matter what nonsense people wanna spew, the guy is a leader and a class act. Kesler is far too stubborn, and isn't the right guy to lead a team with his dog and pony show on the ice. I'm glad they didn't make him the captain (and i was one of the people who was hoping he'd be named the captain after they stripped Lu's).
As a Flyers fan, as much as I love Giroux, Timonen should've been captain this season.
Canadiens: Gorges, though I like Gionta
Islanders: Tavares, but it's best to wait until whether or not Streit will stay
Leafs: no one, then again I don't follow them as much
Stars: Eriksson, please!
Yeah, in that order. Everyone knows Teemu is the leader of the team on and off the ice. Guarantee he turned down the "C" again this year. But that's okay, at least he has an "A".
All in all, I think the right people are the captains of this team. Just because some have "A's" instead of "C's" doesn't mean anyone is better than anyone else. Although Teemu and Saku are probably better candidates than Getzlaf. But what do we know, it's not like we're on the team.
