Hall, the fact that any other option has more than 1 vote shocks me.

Only reason I could see someone other than Hall getting it is that Hall hasn't sounded to keen on taking over as captain when asked about it in interviews.

Why in the world would Hall be captain? He is not yet experienced enough. Give it to a older Veteran. Ales Hemsky (if he stays) Ryan Smyth, Ladislav Smid. At least one of them. They have had more experience and they have been on the team longer. If they want to have a young Captain go with Eberle.

There's only 1 logical choice and that Taylor Hall.

Either give to Smyth for one year and when he retires next year guve it to hall or run with 3 A's and then hall as captain the year after.

Give it to a vet then when he's traded soon, go through the process again?
When did Toews get the C?

Hall had his best year ever wearing a letter this past year...he can handle it

Just because your a Vet. Doesn't mean you will get traded.. And if they are going to go young. Go with Eberle.

This, I'm a Canucks fan but Hall is my favorite player, and the Oilers being my #2 team. Hall will be a great captain, he's a natural leader and plays better under pressure..

Derek Van Diest ‏@SUNdvandiest
So with Horcoff out, do the #Oilers announce @hallsy04 as new captain tomorrow or wait until training camp? Don't think there's a debate...

Agreed.

I think it should go on a veteran. I say give it to Smitty until he retires then give it to Taylor Hall.

I wish I could agree with you, but Smytty isn't the heart and soul of the Oilers anymore, he's the boat anchor and no one will be inspired by his poor play and lazy penalties.
Can't emphasize how much I hate to say that about one of my all time favourites, but the team would be better off with him retiring than they would be with him as captain.

It's Hall. Hall day long.

I'd say Taylor Hall is the no-brainer answer. However if he doesn't feel he's ready, or the org doesn't feel he's ready then give it to Eberle. He's a bit older, seems a bit more mature and can live up to the C without much worry.

Just threw up all over my chest.

And how is Eberle any more experienced than Hall? They came into the league at the same time.

Hall should be captain. The question is when? I'm not really into a short-term captain so I think if he or the team doesn't think he's ready, they should have no captain next season.

Smyth? Hemsky?

Smid is the only other option IMO but Hall is locked up long term and the team is obviously built around him... he'll get it.

I agree with the common sentiment that it should be Hall. He has heart like Smyth with top-10-scoring skill. Easy.

I'm surprised, though, that there isn't more support for Gagner. If it's not Hall, I want the only other scrappy top-6 forward on the roster. If they sort out his contract, he sure as hell deserves a letter.

C - Hall
A - Gagner
A - Eberle
A - Smid

Gotta question if you watched the Oilers at all in the last couple years. Eberle is a beaut, but Hall is the lifeblood of this team.
