Yep, Seguin can wear the "C" for Crunk.

If it were me, I'd do
C-Robidas
A-Dillon
A-Benn
A-Horcoff

With Dillon taking the C next year and Eakin taking the A for him.

We don't have a captain yet. We don't know. All A's until we do.
A mix of vets and kids. Let's see how it shakes out.

Everything I've seen from Dillon exhibits taking the bull by the metaphorical horns in some way shape or form. That's what a leader does. Dont act like it's a stretch to say he could be captain by 14 or 15.

EDIT: just realized it could've come off like Dillon was taking the C from Robi mid season. FWIW, I meant Dillon would get it at the start of 14-15.

I think you have to give it to Robi if he is in the plans for next season.

Seguin as captain this season, to start the season, would be one of the absolute strangest things I can think of.

Honestly, you could interchange Benn and Segin's name in what you wrote and have it equally apply.

Now you see why I suggested making Seguin captain in a thread where Benn is the default answer.

Oh right, I forgot. You like to troll your own idiot fanbase. I'm sure your buddies on that other forum you frequent got a giggle.

Good lord, you're sensitive.

If you think I care that much, you're not paying enough attention. This is a fun timewaste to talk Stars. The only person I seem to be trolling is you because you read every one of my posts as some shot at you. Trust me, that's not the case.

When it comes to captain, I have no ideas. None seem like ideal options right now because they're either too young or too close to being gone as UFAs. On a team father along, Benn/Seguin would be ridiculous options, but for this team, why not? Pick a horse and go with it. This is essentially a team starting from scratch. Might as well do something crazy.

I did a quick tally and Whitney was by far the leader in the clubhouse, followed by votes for "no captain"...lagging behind was everybody else.

Just calling you on your bs. I asked why you said Seguin and your answer turns out to be just another potshot at Benn considering that when you posted, not a single person had said Benn should be captain.

Anyways, carry on. Benn sucks. I'm finally coming around.

Not quite the case. I just disagree with more than half of what you say.

I'm starting to come around on the idea that the captaincy matters much less than the media/fans make it out to be. The only thing that is semi-cereal is giving a guy the C and later taking it away. No matter how you slice it, that's an indictment on Modano's errm a player's leadership.

I agree about stability. I don't think it matters on the ice, but I think forcing captaincy drama on a team can affect them when they're forced to answer a bunch of questions about it.

I think it's silly to go with no captain. Maybe picking a vet on his way out is a nice way for Ruff to avoid making a tough decision.

Didn't Whitney specifically say he didn't want captaincy?
