MacArthur and Lupul Assistant Captains

Toronto Maple Leafs ‏@MapleLeafs

#TMLtalk news: Joffrey Lupul and Clarke MacArthur will be alternate captains #Leafs


Suprised by MacArthur personally, but he's a good choice. Lupul was obvious

Okay with that.
Kind of scares me Grabo was not picked.

Letters aren't a huge deal, he is an on-ice leader, I think everyone sees that. Lupul and Mac are likely one of the two more vocal guys in the room

I will say though, Macarthur seems like a guy you want in your dressing room. Pretty well spoken, seems like he takes care of himself well, and very importantly he will stand up for his teammates on the ice.

Wow, Mac is a surprise. Good for him. We don't know what these guys are really like in the room. Happy for him, he really doesn't take his spot for granted, always works hard.

Grabo deserved it. I don't get why he didn't get it since he was one last year.

Even more surprising, McClement is the "alternate" alternate (aka Grabo last year)

Would've went with Lupul and Liles, just from we as the fans can see of them on the ice and in the media.

But Clarke is probably a big vocal leader in the dressing some of the kids look up to.

It's just curious, since MacArthur hasn't looked like a vocal leader type and his on ice play doesn't really speak very much for itself either.

I think Grabovski and Liles would have been better picks but I'm not in the dressing room, so who knows.

Either way, it's really not that big of a deal.

I want to see MacArthur go into his rage mode more often this season.

Clarke macarthur is one of the toughest guys on the team. When he goes into rage mode i would be scared if i were the opposition

Like most I would have preferred Grabo over Mac. Perhaps it means nothing, but the new regime has selected an all-Canadian leadership group.

He's a veteran. There are few, if any, Leaf veterans that get much respect around here.

I can't speak to that but he seems to have paid his dues. All I can say is it feels a lot smarter to give it to an established type than handing the responsibility to a younger guy who has enough to pressure to deal with. ((a la previous admins)

Yikes MacArthur is a horrible choice - the guy's in the penalty box every second shift - kind of defeats the purpose of having an assistant captain on the ice no?
