Next Captain (in 2 years)

I wanted to know who would you like to be the captain of the Habs, when Gionta's contract ends (and he is not resigned) which would be in 2 years.

- Gorges

- Pacioretty

- Plekanec

- Galchenyuk (he doesn't bust)

- Price

- Subban

I want Galchenyuk to become the next captain because I think he will become a great leader, and will show the exemple with his 100 % good work ethic. Also, he will become our futur number one center, so our best player, and usually captains are the best player, the one who gives the most on ice and the one who has the best work ethic. And I think Galchenyuk has/will have all that.

So who do you choose and why?

there is enough pressure on the kid already. Let the kid develop the right way please. He could be in the running AFTER Gorges but no way in hell he becomes captain at 20-21.

Josh Gorges. He leads by example, he plays with heart, and he goes 100% every shift.

I definitely don't want a goalie as a captain.

Also, I doubt Galchenyuk will be captain in two years. In two years it will be his rookie season. Now I'm not saying it won't happen because Landeskog did get captaincy, but I don't think it's likely.

Yea, but the question was more like: who would you rather have as the next captain?
not who do you think will be the next captain

Right now it would be Gorges easily but a lot can change in 2 years...

Who'd I like? Pacioretty. He's already pretty mature.

I'd say Gorges.

Anyone know if he has had any prior experience of being a captain? Like in Junior or something like that?

There was a meme some time ago. Some people here would keep arguing that Gorges was actually captain of his former junior or peewee team (Kelowna?). All of them are trolls, don't listen to these guys. Gorges was never captain.

I want him to be our captn' once Gionta leaves tho. Galchenyuk can be the ''C'' a few years later, when he's established himself as the face of the franchise. If we're lucky he'll be a ''Habs for life'' type so even if he becomes captain in 5-6 years only his reign would last a long time.

Assumptions about Gionta seriously flawed. Don't think Gorges will ever be captain, and a goalie as symbolic captain is a mockery.

Agree on Gorges, it will probably be him. Voted Pac because I really want to see him step into that role.

Even though Captain Kelowna is the obvious choice, I was expecting more votes for Pacioretty.

Gorges is this team's leader, no disrespect to Gionta.

It's mind boggling that we got him as a throw in by San Jose.
