I understand the article writer's position, but when you have only one player who won the franchise's only Stanley Cup, who is a six-time All-Star, a two-time Art Ross Trophy winner (including last season), a three-time Lady Byng Trophy winner, and a one-time Pearson Trophy and Hart Trophy winner, who will be going into his 13th season with the team...you give that guy the captaincy.

It would be different if MSL was just a scorer, who didn't provide leadership, and simply did his job on the ice and went home. We all know he's not that as he is a leader off the ice, in the community, etc.

It's not as though people who aren't Lightning fans would ask "Why the hell did the give it to MSL?!" Marty is still a marketable player, who has worked his ass off for this team through really good and really bad, and he should be the captain. Stammer will be a great captain after Marty, but I think now is the time for Marty to wear the C...he's earned it.

Yeah, the only way Marty doesn't get this is if he turns it down to give it to Stamkos.

Stamkos on Tuesday, the day before the start of camp at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, said St. Louis deserves the honor.

"You have to think, from my point of view anyway, it will go to Marty," Stamkos said. "He's been a guy who has been here a long time. He deserves a chance to wear the C."
Quote:
"We all know what kind of guy Marty is and the leader that he is," Stamkos said, and added, "No matter who gets it, it's not going to change the way anyone looks at anyone in this room. But if I had to put some money down, I'd put it on Marty."

Marty has 2 more years left on his deal. He gets the "C" for those two years. On July 1st of 2015 there is a joint announcement of a long term Stamkos deal on the first day he is eligible to sign one and he gets the "C".

Why not allow St. Louis to have it until he retires (I don't think he retires after his current contract ends).

My thoughts exactly, who cares if it's 2 years or if they want to prep Stamkos for the future, the team needs stability now especially after losing Vinny. Marty is the guy who's going to pull the team together this season.

The team is not expected to name the ninth captain in franchise history until after training camp concludes and St. Louis said he's not worried about whether he ends up with the C on his sweater. Instead, he is concentrating on getting through training camp on the preseason schedule.

“I'll be ready if called upon,'' he said.

The other leading candidate believed to be under consideration for the captaincy, Steven Stamkos, says naming St. Louis to that role seems a logical choice.

“Marty is a guy that I've been trying to learn from since Day One, everyone knows that,'' Stamkos said. “He's a heart-and-soul guy on this team and he's been here for a long time. He'd get my vote.''

That's the respect St. Louis has earned in his tenure with Tampa Bay.

Consider this, and I know I'm preaching to the choir.

If the players were to vote for their captain, who would they pick? I think unanimously they'd pick Marty.

Without question Marty Should get the C even Stammer said he deserved it. But knowing that a lot of teams are going for younger captains it wouldn't surprise me if the Bolts made Stamkos captain.

Has MSL indicated at all whether he'll retire when his current contract is done?

Marty deserves to be captain and he will probably get it. My other thought is they might do a Captain A and B kind of thing. Stamkos is the future of this team and Marty only has so much time left. Wouldn't surprise me if they switched out the C once in a while. No doubt though that everybody in that locker knows Marty is the best leader in that locker room. It would just put a little more of that leadership role on Stamkos as well.

Stamkos should get it. 3 years left in his contract. Marty is getting old. Give it to the player we want to see stick around for the rest of his career, not someone on their way out.

Stamkos is already a few years into his career, therfore that much closer to retirement. Better give it to Drouin

“There are captains that have been quiet and captains that have been vocal,’’ Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “But you have to have a presence, there is no doubt. So, whoever our captain turns out to be will have a presence.’’
Quote:
“You see both (stamkos and St. Louis) of them working together, how hard they work, it’s contagious,’’ center Nate Thompson said. “They both are (vocal) when they need to be. When they both say something everyone listens, because it’s usually something pretty important and it usually goes a long way.’’
Quote:
“He’s a leader in all regards. Whether it’s leading by example or in the room being vocal, he does it all,’’ Stamkos said of St. Louis. “Some guys are just one or the other, but he does both.

“You can’t teach that — you either have it or you don’t, and Marty has that in him. He is a heart-and-soul kind of guy, and he’s been doing it in this league for a long time and he’s definitely deserving.’’
Quote:
“I think Steven, the kind of player that he is, the way he plays the game, he plays pretty hard,’’ St. Louis said. “And Steven is a guy that can be vocal. He is developing into a pretty good leader, so on top of that he plays the game at a high level.

“I think he understands how you play in this league, how you survive and how you dominate. It’s a whole other level of hard work and he gets it.’’
Quote:
“It’s not just one guy, but one guy has to be the leader of that group as well,’’ Cooper said.

And there is a certain reverence that comes with being the captain of a hockey team.

“Hockey is the one sport where you are actually physically recognized as the leader. You are the guy that everybody looks to. You are the one that is accountable for your team, and there is just a ton of importance put on that. I don’t think in all the other sports there is anybody like the captain of the hockey team. “For me, it’s the highest honor possible.’’

Going on the record to predict St. Louis-C, Stamkos-A, Carle-A.

Though I don't think that's all that much of a limb to climb out on.

I'd prefer Thompson for the second 'A'.

I'd expect Salo to get the 2nd 'A' at this point.

Any chance Drouin gets an A? Oh yeah forgot he busted already, oops.

They'll probably give the C to St. Louis just so they can get the people who have his jersey with the A to buy a new one. In three years they can then do the same with Stamkos.

Hope they give the second A to Crombeen just for RobertGuess. Think Hedman should get it though.
