I honestly doubt it.

I don't see the rush, and don't really see the point either.

It's probably going to be Pacioretty, whether it's a vote or a coach decision.

Patches disappears in the playoffs and we want to put a C on his shirt? Subban is the heart and soul of our team and it's proud history.

I get that Subban was massively underrated this season, and I do think he should be captain because we shouldn`t give more pressure to Pacioretty.

But Price is the heart and soul of this team

PK or Gallagher for me. Both guys play great during the regular season but when the playoffs start they still find another gear.
Pacman is okay to have the A, but not captain material for me.

The captain is in the net.. I dont see any skaters wearing the C, I personally prefer to have no captain instead having one not really deserving it...

We already have one in Price. We just have an extra A out there since goalies don't wear C's

Essentially. The real C is Price and it's clear as day.

Price is the captain of this team. Putting a C on anybody else's jersey would simply be ceremonial at this point. For that reason alone I don't really care to see a C right away.

Does CP31 still play for the team? He's the captain.

There's a difference between the leader and the captain.

I don't think we'll have a 'C' next year. And you know what? That's OKAY!

100000% one is going to be named at the start o the annual golf tourney.


99% sure its going to be Max, but I feel like Bergevin actually would like Gallagher to be the captain but he is too young but that 1% chance goes to Gally being given the C.

Captain: Subban

Assistant: Markov
Assistant: Pacioretty
Assistant: Plekanec
Assistant: Gallagher

Just have two home and two away assistants. As for Subban he is the obvious choice. He is the face of the franchise.

Yes I will say that Subban is the face of the franchise. As much as it should be Price he can not wear the C on his jersey. Look at it this way, if you are a reporter and you can interview one player who would you pick?

I doubt we will.

If we do it will be Pacioretty, but I don't think so.

Price is the captain, they don't tell the press but that's the way it is.

I think they will give the C to Pac during the pre-season

Personally I don't care if they have a captain or not. In today's game it's meaningless.

That said I think they'll name one before the season starts, probably Pacioretty.

This is how I see it as well. Of all the options, I'd say he's the only one that would actually welcome the additional attention

As opposed to the next leading candidate (MaxPac), given how he's prone to long goal droughts, might eventually crumble under the pressure

Gallagher despite his amazing work ethic and drive I can't see the refs ever taking him seriously so just for that it's a no-go
