Hall. It shouldn't even be up for discussion. He and Yak are already the heart and soul of this team.


Would have said Eberle a yr or two ago. How quickly my opinion on that changed.

I'd agree with this, But I think its finally time our best player is captain. Last 3 Oiler captains have been grinders. First skilled Oiler captain since Doug weight, I think were due.

Yeah, I like Smid a lot, and he'll get an "A", but I want to see the "C" go to a guy who can put the team on his back and single handedly win games when need be. Hall has done that, but Smid isn't at that level.

I don't think they should be in any rush to name a new captain, especially with a new head coach coming in. I'm going to vote no captain.

It should be Hall.

But I would still like the new coach to be in place before they name Hall the next captain. I want it to be from the coach. Hopefully that can help build a relationship for the 2 going forward and they can be on the same page.

My 0.02

Hall certainly has the heart of a Captain and has the work ethic to lead by example, but he is about as cerebral as a goal post.

Third liners are rarely the best players on their own team

It's time to give "C" to one who deserved. It's been while since this happened in edmonton.
Unanimously, hall is the best fit.

I would be absolutely floored if it wasn't Hall. Smid and Eberle seem like natural choices for the 'A'.

You're expecting them to take the letters away from Eberle and Schultz? Schultz maybe, but not Eberle. BTW, I's like to see Smid get an "A" and was really hoping he'd get one last year. My choices would be Hall, Eberle, and Smid.

With or without the C, Hall is the caption. He drive the team. May as well put the letter on his jersey.

Give it to Hall, and don't even wait a year. Smid gets Hall's A.

Nuge!

...Just kidding. Hall of course. He is extremely competitive, and one of the hardest working oilers every night.

Same as everyone mostly.
C-Hall
A-Smid
A-Eberle


And to whoever said Smyth, you do not give the C out of misguided worship to a player who may not be back, and if he is, will sit about 15-20 games should proper perssonel be brought in.

I could very well seeing them go with 3 A's to start. Hall, Eberle and Hopkins with A's. Next captain will either be Hall or Eberle.

I think Smid is a better choice as well signed for a discount put team ahead of him self. True leader , also nobody sacrafices his body for team like Smid as well Limps off almost every shift true warrior. Hall would be better down the road when he has earned his stripes Smid already has.

Moreau and Horcoff "earned their stripes" too, but it didn't translate into an adequate captaincy.

I think that anybody who says Hall hasn't earned his stripes wasn't paying attention last season. He is the engine of this team.
