Who gets an 'A'

With Conroy leaving, who will get his 'A'?

The obvious candidates are Rhett Warrener, Martin Gelinas and Stephane Yelle. I personally think it should go to Yelle, but what do you guys think?

I don't see Sutter giving Gelinas an 'A'. The guy is not our most consistent veteran and as such isn't the best example on the ice for our younger players.

I think Yelle, Nilson, Langkow, Wiemer and Warrener would be the candidates I'd be looking at.

Rhett Warner and Robyn Regehr should hold the A's.

I'm torn between Yelle and Warrener, both have spectacular work ethics, they bring up the play of their linemates, and they were both critical players in the Flames run (and in several other runs before).

I might pick Warrener because he is quite outspoken and has actively addressed problems with teammates before.

Can't go wrong with either Warrener or Yelle. Nilson is a guy who could also be an option, more likely further down the road though.

Warrener or Yelle are fine with me. But it doesn't really matter both will lead with or without the A.

Perhaps a Canucks fan can help me out with this , but i recall seeing Linden, Morrison, Jovanovski, and Bertuzzi all wearing A's last year.

How about this?

Home games:

C-Iginla
A-Regehr
A-Gelinas

Road games:

C-Iginla
A- Yelle
A-Warrener

I think it will be someone like Nilson. Sutter has been PREACHING about how he wants a younger team and a core of around 25-28 years old and Nilson fits that bill. He has leadership and I believe was an "A" with Florida. Gelinas and Warrener are not core players and are out of the age group Sutter is building around. It would be better to make a guy like Nilson an "A" and have him for 5 more years wearing the letter than a guy like Yelle or Gelinas who will be gone in 1-2 seasons. Sutter is interested in the "longterm" building, not shorterm.

Nilson is 26.

Warrener will be 29 this year. I would also prefer to have 2 letters in the forward area and one in the defense area. Basically it would leave 2 guys (C and A) to motivate 9 forwards and 1 (A) to motivate 6 defenseman. I would not want only one captain to motivate 9 forwards. My thinking is that guys have more of an impact on their positions and players who play the same area (defense-defense, etc).

I'd like to see Yelle or Warrener get the other A. Can't go wrong with either of them.
