Next Captain?

Now that theres a 75% certainty that Pominville will be traded, Who do you think could be the next captain?

Vanek- he's a vetern player and the best player on the team, but he's hot and cold and we have all seen him look up to the rafters when he doesn't score

Ott- he is a very emotional player and it looks like he has become one of the leaders on the team and all the guys seem to like him but he is Steve Ott and plays like Steve Ott and do you want Otter to be your captain?

Stafford-hahahhahahahhaa

maybe one of the younger guys?

someone else

Hecht- just because hes like a Sabres herpes just can't seem to get rid of him

If Poms gets dealt, there wouldn't be a C for the remainder of the year... And Hecht is gone after this...So you can remove herpes from the list.

Stafford would make me more sick than I already get seeing the alternate A on his Jersey.

But this is premature.

At this point, nobody is worthy. Sabretooth, maybe.

Pominville won't get traded, because I want him dealt.

Such is life as a Buffalo sports fan.

It'd just be 3 A's until someone that isn't a physical mental midget can lead this team.

If it's not Ehrhoff, something's wrong.

No identifiable Captain.

Lots of changes need to be made before THAT issue is settled.

No captain, three A's
Vanek
Ehrhoff
Ott?

If Stafford doesn't get traded he stays with it and Ehrhoff or Ott gets an A.
Then Cody will get it in a couple of years.

If you think CoHo is the future captain of the team ( i do )... then you give it to him now, and live with the growing pains

Pominville is a good player that seems to have been negatively affected by being named captain. If there's no clear choice.... no captain should be named. It'll just make it awkward for when you have to switch to a real captain.

If, on the other hand, you think CoHo is the future captain... and he's close to ready... I agree with Jame

He had arguably the best season of his career last year after being named captain. How can you say being named captain was negative for him?

C- Ehrhoff
A- Foligno
A- Hodgson

Give the C to a guy who exhibits class through his play--both in performance and his actions--and doesn't hurt his team by frequently putting them in bad situations. Give the A's to the future leaders in the organization.

Maybe naming him captain forces him to focus on that part of his game even more

I have the same concern...
I also believe a new system and a real training camp will make a big difference
(CoHo has never had a training camp with the Sabres)

Agree, but I wouldn't give it to him at least until after training camp. I'd like to see him develop more defensively before putting the C on his chest. And that's probably when it'd make sense to name a captain anyway, what with the lack of permanent head coach right now.

I'd also be OK with giving him (and maybe Ott) an A, and just rolling 3 of those and no C for a year.
