Who Should Get the Other A?

With Fisher as the probable 1st alternate captain, who would you give the 2nd alternate captain role to?

Alternate captain... (Sorry, pet peeve of mine)

If Legwand is interested in it, I'd give it to him. However, I think a strong case can be made for Klein as well.

Toss an A on Pekka's chest; rare, but not unheard of for goalies to get it.

Rules limit the goalie's ability to be effective in the captain's role. Luongo earned an "A", but due to the limitations another Canuck wore the letter and filled the role. Luongo wore an "A" on the chin of his helmet instead.

Unless Legwand doesn't want it, I think it is his. They did give it to him after Erat left and even updated the site to reflect it.

As a not at all biased goalie who wore a C in my high school league last year, I say screw convention and give Rinne at least an honorary A. Let Legwand wear it on the jersey if you want, but give Rinne the title IMO (assuming he wants it).

I also think Hornqvist "deserves" one, but the job of the Cs and As is to talk to the refs in a calm and collected manor to avoid getting more penalties, something that is not his strong suit.

I wouldn't be opposed to Klein.

All 3 of these wore it temporarily last season with the injuries.

Klein deserves the A

(But toss it on Dickey at least once since he kept many of us thoroughly entertained when he was using his twitter)

Leggy or Klein. They usually stay calm and collective.

Gaustad. Grit and leadership. Tough guy. Just look at the way he stood up to Peckham last year after a hit he laid on either Horns or Wilson.

Klein would be perfect for it imo and deserves it.

While true with the new players being assigned numbers and all of that being updated I would take it as Legwand being the other A, even without the formal introduction and knowing the way Legwand is, he probably prefers it without the announcement.

I guess my point would be, one would think there would at least be a PR Release noting this. I am thinking this will not be announced until September as Erat wasn't announced until January 13th when the team knew all summer before the lockout that they would need to name a new A
