if he stay here- is the new Captain Vanek.100% ok on the ice he is not every time "the fighter not every look up to him" but he give his blood and body for the team. i think so.

If he's in the fold for the future, I wouldn't mind it being him. I'd probably endorse it if he signs a long term deal to stay. Definitely.

I guess this will be a hot topic now.

Ehrhoff or Vanek is my guess.

I stick with what i said yesterday, 3 A's in pure ruff style
Vanek
Stafford
Ott

OR(not likely)

Ehrhoff gets the C
Vanek A
Ott A

but man i think it's gonna break Stafford if he gets stripped. But with Rolston behind the wheel, who knows. Although i don't think we'll have a Captain before the start of the 13-14 season.

Naming Vanek the captain would guarantee his departure in short order

Sort of a future thing, but lots of Wild fans saying Larsson is the captain type. Has a history of it on the national level too.

Rolston needs to atone for Ruff's stupid idiotic decision to ever put a C on Pominville's jersey.

Thomas Vanek is and always was the true captain.Give him the C and a big extension next summer.

Yep, put the C on his sweater and then ship his ass out at the deadline for a big haul

It almost has to be Vanek right? AS much as everyone can make a case for Ehrhoff or Ott.... Vanek has been here the longest and it the most talented player.... he looked disappointed when he didn't get he C last year.

Pysyk captained the Oil Kings.

I believe Girgensons was the captain for Dubuque.

If Vanek is in the long term plans, he should get the C.

100% agree. Ott is a great locker room guy, and a great agitator - but he is not captain material.

I doubt anyone gets it for the remainder of the year. If Rolston does give it to anyone, it'll be Vanek.

I want nothing to do with Ott being captain.

Nobody this year.

Nobody deserves it right now anyway.

Talk to Vanek about the future, and then if he's retained let the players vote an if it's him it's him.
