If Kovy wants it, really WANTS it, that's one thing. But Sal can take the burden of it, and let Kovy do his thing without the pressure of the C. We know Sal's going to come hard every night, and it's not like we'll be ripping him if he goes through a scoring slump.

I am in shock he left.

This is a tough call. I guess Kovy would be the kneejerk choice, but I don't know if I want to pile any more pressure on him. He had a great year with just the A and I don't want to rock the boat with him. With Patty, it's been there, done that. Let's leave that one alone. Who does that leave? Salvador I guess. Maybe Zajac. Nobody really jumps out at me as a no-brainer.

They won't name anyone now. Someone will be the obvious captain in training camp, and I'm willing to bet it will be Kovy.

Kovy and Sal are the only two choices. Patty, Sal, Clarkson and Zubrus are all on the last year of their deals...NEVER AGAIN. We don't need a C to become a revolving door the way the coaching position had been for a long time.

From all the videos I've seen, Kovy is very vocal on the bench getting the guys pumped up and making adjustments. I'd like to see him become our Captain with Sal and Patty wearing A's.

im kinda of glad we are getting a new captain, we need a guy who wont be a push over and will stick up for his teammates and will talk with the team.
Zach only played hard, he got pushed around way too much and that was one of the things that bothered me the most.

He better ****ing lock up Zajac or devils aren't going anywhere for a long time. Losing a winger isn't the same as losing a center.

Anyone else but Kovalchuk is the incorrect choice.

Again, he put this team on his back in the second half of 2011 while Zach watched from the press box.

Totally agreed. I see no reason why it wouldn't be Kovy. with Elias and Sal get the A.

I would just rather Kovy didn't feel that extra pressure with the C. He's so up and down emotionally and even Elias struggled at times carrying the burden to be the spokesperson. I just think a defenseman wearing the C is so much easier for many reasons and Sal has shown he can interview well, speak intelligently and level headed even after the most gut wrenching games.

Sal for C is my campaign but I have no real issues really with anyone on the team getting it. Merely hesitations for a guy that already has felt so much pressure as Captain before...

Elias did the same thing in 2006, then struggled as the C in 2007.

kor what it's worth, kovy really, REALLY upped his game when he was named captain in atlanta. it was the most inspired i'd ever seen him play aside from in the playoffs.

though that could be related to the fact that the thrashers picked up rich peverley around the same time. those two were dynamite together.

I love Kovalchuk, but I think making him captain will probably end some unnecessary pressure that he doesn't need. I personally like having him as an alternate.

I wouldn't mind seeing Bryce Salvador become captain.

And of course, if Ryan Carter and his mustache want to be captain, that's perfectly fine with me!
