But now that I say that, he'll drop an egg on us.
3/8 corresponds to a 40 goal regular 82 game season? Seems right to me.

Have a feeling that Steps will be wearing an A tonight.

Just a hunch.

He didn't actually wear a C on his jersey, but he had a C on his mask. Officially, the Canucks had 3 alternates because goalies are not allowed to be captains.

Okay, let me justify Halpern as Alternate Captain

- He has experience
- He gives 100% every shift
- He is a classy player, not dirty or a goon

There. That sums it up for me.

Ahh. I remember seeing something in the news like he gave it up or something.

Actually.

But anyway, Hank don't need a letter to be a leader. And Callahan already has a C and 3 A's on the back of his jersey, we good

Edit: Kreiderman good points. I never exactly disagreed, but maybe I'm more biased cause he han't been here long

It sucks that goalies can't be captains because I'd love to have Hank wearing an A. Gaborik, Nash, or maybe even Boyle will probably have the other A tonight.

The reason I say Boyle is because he wore the second A in the preseason game against Frolunda last season.

The reason he wore the C on his mask was because goalies are not allowed to be captains. If he was their captain, the C would have been on his jersey.

Quote:
In order to account for the league rule, Luongo did not perform any of the on-ice duties reserved for captains and did not wear the captain's "C" on his jersey. Instead he incorporated it into the artwork on the front of one of his masks which he occasionally wore for the early months of the 2008–09 season.[78] Canucks defenceman Willie Mitchell was designated to handle communications with on-ice officials, while defenceman Mattias Öhlund was responsible for ceremonial faceoffs and other such formalities associated with captaincy.[5] Centre Ryan Kesler was chosen along with Mitchell and Öhlund as the third alternate captain.[5]

If you're giving it to a new guy, you give it to Nash for the same reasons they gave Jagr the C. Guy is the clear leader on the ice in terms of play.

Actually, he did give it up before the 2010-11 season. It was a pretty big deal, actually......

I would definitely put our captains as this:

C: Cally
A: Richie
A: Staal

In event of injury Assistants move up and following is order for their replacements wearing the As:

1. Girardi
2. Gaborik
3. Boyle
4. Stepan
5. McD
6. Nash
7. Halpern

With Richards due to come back soon I don't expect they'll pass it to anyone.

Gaborik, Boyle, Halpern wouldn't be bad choices.

Boyle with it is good. He is good defensively. I still like him.

I don't care who wears the As so long as they are winning games. Give it to a clown hooker blow up doll on the bench for all I care.

They call the guy " king " he has his own crown logo . He doesn't need a letter to be admonished as a leader on the team . They chant his name at the garden . Letters on sweaters are for position players

I have to take the fact that people are discussing the alternates for 3 pages as a good sign the team is playing better overall and there's not much to complain about.

While we at it take that letter off Richards sweater . That's a lark . I don't care if he makes samores for rookies at his PEI estate while taking them to the Madestone club wearing a pink polo . The guy is a mercenary who refused a trade and held up his old team and left them hanging . On top of that he's a bust here , who is soft , out of shape and mentally weak.
This guy can't be gone soon enough. I'd swap him for Lecalvier in a second and Torts can go with him . Good riddens beaver

This is ****ing ridiculous. Wouldn't it have been worse if he did accept a trade? He would just make his new team in a bit worse situation. You should start using logic before talking nonsense.

If I were a sponsor, this would go into my sig.

Actually, I might just become a sponsor so that I can do this.

EDIT: It has now been 2 minutes since I read Dorado's great work in literature. I still can't stop laughing.
