I feel like Frans and Okposo should wear the As full time. Frans has worn it before and wore it well. As much as I like Hammer I would still go Frans. Viz as experienced as he is, after the guy tried to circumvent even being here. Yes, water under the bridge but still, the fact of the matter is, there are more deserving.
The "A" isn't just about the player as it is his duties. I don't think Martin gets enough ice time to wear an A. If it were my team I would let JT decide who he thinks should wear the A. Puts ownership to if on a team level and the players have to answer to the captain as well as the coach.
If I was the captain I would want Nielsen and Hamonic wearing the A for me with a nod to Okposo if somebody can't wear it for some reason.
I have some concerns about making JT captain. Mainly because it seems like young guys who get named captain get weighed down by the responsibility.
I would say give it to KO, but with his just turning the corner, I don't want to do that to him either.
Frans is 29, plays both sides of the puck well, seems to fit in well with the team, gets plenty of ice time and is signed for the next three years (so there's hope for stability). Plus, he'd be the first Danish NHL captain, so, history!
