Future Edmonton Oilers Captain

Based entirely on speculation, who would most likely be the next future captain of the Oilers?

I am not an Oilers fan so this is just my opinion, but with all the young superstars getting captaincies and alternates, I think one of Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins, or Hall would be the mix.
I believe that they are all very marketable, but for some reason I feel Eberle would be in the front running due to his junior days and his early career success.
Then there are Nugent-Hopkins and Hall. Both are formal first overall picks and appear to have great careers ahead of them. Either one of them would also be a great choice.
My off the board choices would be either Smid if he decides to stay long term, and the less likely Hemsky for his long services with the Oilers. I would assume if management chose someone aside from the big three, it would be because they wouldn't want to put more pressure on their young superstars.

So, any thoughts?

Yeah we get a thread like this every couple weeks

The board thought it should be Hall
But now that eberle is a permanent "a" it seems it could be him.
