Hejduk named Captain

Ok...There's been a lot of discussion about who the next Captain should be in different threads...Here's a poll (listing 13 names in alphabetical order from the AVs roster.) So...who is the Next Captain of the Colorado Avalanche and if you feel so inclined talk about why...

I think Johnson deserves it. He's the only one that has talked like a captain since the good days of Foote. I understand the people that want Hejduk as captain, but my point is to settle the captaincy for a long and we all know is Hejduk is on the downside of years in his remaining career.

If O'Reilly was about 5 years older I could see him in the mix for the captain, but imo there are better options. I definitely see him getting the A down the road.

Stastny is imo the only other option to challenge for the C and does have the game for it, but does he have the lockerroom presence for it? I know Sakic had a quiet feel to the room, but imo for this new team we need someone with fire, passion, and the skill to back it up and it comes to EJ.

Are you saying that his lack of hockey ability affects his nationality?



And for the captaincy, I think it will be Hejduk.

It's the other way around.

That would mean that being Polish results in being a plug, while I was questioning why he was a plug instead of a Pole.

I just realized how off topic this is, so I will stop now.

Make Hejduk the captain. It will give Landeskog atleast some time to get accustomed to the league by when Hejduk eventually retires u can name Landeskog the captain.

Hejduk. I like the idea of EJ being the vocal captain, but I'd rather he get the C after spending more than a few games with the team.

Apparently Stastny is great in the locker room...especially with the young guys. At least according to Peter McNab. But the times McNab said that were before the elder Stastny went off about the Stewart trade.

I swear the captain talk around here changes with every new guy that skates onto the ice.

Hejduk is the obvious grandfather choice, but I don't think he wants it. In that case I'd stick with Stastny as the guy to lead the team for the foreseeable future. He's apparently got the knack for it, he's enough of a veteran that it isn't rushing things, and, compared to most of the rest of the team, he's got a couple years experience on everyone.

That said, after his struggles last year, the team might be reticent about burdening him with the responsibility, thinking it might weigh him down. But I don't know. That's something you've got to be in the room to even guess at, and none of us are snapping towels under the Pepsi Center. For all we know, Hunwick fires them up like nobody's business.

EJ.

I just don't get the feeling that Hejduk wants to wear the 'C'.

Who I want as Captain: EJ. Who I think will get it: Stastny. ...but as the days go on, I am less and less sure that the team will name Staz Captain. We'll see. Dagnabbit, the season needs to start!

Like I said before, Hejduk should get it for the time being until a true leader steps out. Most likely Johnson, O'Reilly, Stastny or a more mature Duchene.

I voted EJ, but I think someone who isn't getting alot of talk that could be considered is Kyle Quincey. I remember reading alot about him being a vocal leader out on the ice last training camp. Maybe he'll get an A?

I think it will be EJ...shocked to see the lack of Duchene.

At this point Duchy is still the face of this franchise and I wouldn't be shocked at all if he was named.
