He still hasn't re-signed so that might have had something to do with it.

Until O'Reilly signs, any captaincy discussion involving him is less than pointless.

No one really knows if he feels slighted but as I mentioned before, it's difficult to say how O'Reilly's game would have been affected had he been named captain.

He takes losses extremely hard and while it's always nice to see that he takes it to heart, it's not what the team needs in a leader. O'Reilly will likely get an A and it will be well deserved and he'll be able to focus on getting better.

Lando was clearly the best choice, in my opinion.

My inside sources who was in the locker room every game last year says O'Reilly was the clear captain, and Landeskog was sitting in a dark corner doing nothing. He also said unicorns were jumping over rainbows looking for the pot of gold.

Probably not. If he was their guy they would have gotten him signed and then announced him as the captain. There was no real urgency making the decision this week.

DP did write "Sacco said Hejduk will return to being an assistant captain with Paul Stastny, and unsigned center Ryan O'Reilly might be given a fourth letter when the restricted free agent officially rejoins the team." so the team does view him as one of the leaders.

I'm wondering where TwoPadStack is...I'd love to hear his thoughts on the O'Reilly situation in general.

I remember him saying that he thought it was going to be handled pretty quickly, that both sides "love each other" and whatnot.

But first and foremost, I just hope he's okay, because he hasn't been around as much lately.

I'm still of the opinion O'Reilly never having a letter until possibly next season is symbolic of how he wasn't interested in becoming the Captain.

no contract = no captaincy.

Without a contract it's not realistic to put Factor into the captaincy discussion.

No one here knows if O'Reilly was considered or not but I must say, Mike Chambers has some sort of sick obsession with O'Reilly.

Did the thought ever occur to you that TwoPadStack IS Ryan O'Reilly?.

I wonder if EJ will still get to wear one. They haven't gone with the four A rotation since Bourque was with the Avs.

See the thing is, RoR will likely never make team Canada. Heck I doubt anyone on our current roster makes Team Canada - they're stacked!!

But Lando will make Team Swede! So, being smart about it, the Avs made Lando captain to represent the team and drag his buddies OEL, Karlsson and Hedman away to join the team in the future! Its a brillant plan!

*2014 Olympics*

LANDO: "So uh, wanna join me and play in Colorado guys?!"
OEL/Karlsson/Hedman: "HELL YEA!"

Brilliant. Just. Brilliant!

Thus the reason why RoR is not captain.

Can't argue with back to back Finals appearances and a championship to boot!

yes. As a result he will hold out from the team and be traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for a legit first-line center in Tyler Bozak.

And thanks Bender for being a ray of sunshine amongst a cloud of trash.

I know this may sound ridiculous, and i know NHL players have much better things to do then spend their days on here, but do you guys think any players have accounts on here? I'm sure lots of young guys do. They may not even use it anymore but every kid just starting out at like the bantam level loves reading about what other people have to say about them. I'm sure lots of young players got an account in their mid teens and may still even log in sometimes.
