Deserves it more than Richards, agreed, but I feel Girardi has been overlooked when it comes to picking a new alternate ever since Callahan was named captain.
Girardi wore the A in Staal's absence but deserves to be alternate captain in stead of Richards.
I disagree. Richards is a mentor to more than half of this team. While he may not be producing yet this year, ask DelZotto or Stepan how much he means to them as a leader on this team. And I think Slick Rick is loving life as just a player on the team and not having to shoulder a leadership role.
14 points in 15 games in a defense first oriented lame system.
He can have all three letters if he puts team on his back and starts lighting up teams like the pens , Devils , Flyers in Big games that mean something . Rick is the real deal but takes more than late goals against the Bolts for me to give him a letter.
There's a few people on this team who could have an argument for them to get an 'A.' Nash maybe after this season if he keeps it up, but I wouldn't give him one right now. Girardi clearly next in line, considering he was wearing an 'A' in Staal's absence. Perhaps McDonagh is too young, but he certainly plays like he deserves an 'A'
Knowing Torts though, when Richards leaves he'll give it to Boyle
