I think the quote didn't have the "no", which is obviously the key word there.

I doubt very much adding two jerseys to the total team load of equipment is a burden.

It doesn't really but it tells me that this team can't come to any defining decision once again, to me its a cop out. Not that this team will really be different regardless of who is captain but still it leaves a mediocre taste in my mouth.

Stafford is the only guy to go from wearing a letter last year, to not having one this year?

I like Stafford and all and I do not agree with all the hate he gets but in all honesty he should never have gotten a letter. it seemed like more of an attempt to light a fire under his ***

I think the team has made many defining decisions just in 2013 alone.

He definitely said no... i just re-listened to it

Not a big deal. I don't care if he wasn't transparent about it. But it's good to know for future reference that he's willing to lie in interviews

I don't think this was solely RonRon's decision.

They have and like most teams have done some "questionable" (for lack of a better word) calls too. It's just one of those things where I myself would rather have a legit captain regardless of whether or not it is the guy I wanted or not. As stated earlier though it doesn't really change anything and unfortunately with Vanek playing in front of the net so often it is only a matter of time before he gets injured again anyway so we may end up seeing Ott with the C more than half the games anyway.

Doesn't matter, what he answered was the question "Are you going to have co-captains". This situation is not a co-captaincy as Jeremy and Howard posed it. Let's not go overboard here.

I think this is quite obviously a hold the spot situation, hoping a young guy steps up.

yeah it is not exactly co-captains but Rolston knew the real question being as "Is there going to be one captain?" and I would have thought he would have answered to that question accordingly.

I like it.

At least this is more definitive than having 6 different players wearing a letter (rotating the A's too).

He didn't even claim it was his decision alone. He answered the question of whether it was his decision with a 'yes' but then qualified that to include other organizational people being included in the process.

I don't see why Darcy would want to impose upon the coach the captaincy a co-captaincy of guys who are on expiring contracts.

I guessed it was going to be Vanek C, Ott A, and Ehrhoff A....Pretty Close.
