rangers would be silly not to resign Callahan.... he might demand a lot but I personally think hes worth it, especially because he IS the Captain. It would be AV's call and im scared he might chose Nash.
Well, currently Callahan has the C and both Staal and Richards have the A. Girardi wears the A if either Staal or Richards is out long term.
Now, assuming Callahan is traded, Richards is bought out, and Girardi is re-signed, then one would have to assume that everyone gets a "bump." Staal would get the C, Girardi gets a permanent A, and then I'd have to assume that Nash would get the second A being our top forward and a former C of Columbus.
That said, Girardi could easily jump Staal for the C if the organization gauges that Staal is eyeing Carolina.
If Girardi isn't re-signed then McDonagh gets his A.
Guys McDonagh doesn't even have an A. I wouldn't give it to anyone, if I had to I'd give it to Staal. Frankly I don't wan't to see McDonagh get more than an A, does he literally have to do everything for this team?
Assuming that McD should get a letter because he is an amazing player is silly. He's been passed over for a letter before. As great as he is, greatness on the ice doesn't always translate to leadership.
