Strip Getzlaf of captaincy; Give it to Kesler

I was one of those people who thought people overreacted when they wanted Getzlaf stripped of the captaincy few years ago. You have to give a guy some time to become a captain. But he's been given 5 years now and I'm sure he's a good leader, but he sure isn't setting an example when he doesn't play hard every shift.

Kesler for Captain 2015!

Yeah, whether it may be best for the team or not, it's not happening. Getz is the Captain and these are type of performances you can get used to every year.

Their window was already closed when they stripped Thornton's captaincy. Or are you talking about when they stripped Marleau of the captaincy then gave it to Rob Blake then Thornton

I think it's time to invest some leadership around the young D starting next season. They will be the future core if this one chokes next year. IMO Getzlaf was given a very fair chance at leading, and he has proven he can't do it.

Nobody really cares who wears a C. The leaders inside a room lead. Whether they have a letter or not.

Kesler is my favourite player on your ducks team, but he isn't getting a sniff on the captaincy since he's only been here for a year, and Getzlaf has established himself as a leader for your franchise for quite a while now.

Kesler will likely get the A when Beauchemin is gone (hopefully now) and there isn't really a difference. Leaders are Leaders regardless of what is on their jersey

Nope. Getzlaf will remain captain. Sure , he played nowhere near his standards this post season but he has led us through much adversity as captain and our best player and until I hear a duck come out and say that he has poor leadership capabilities I will stand by him.

Plus we are not a team like tampa bay that can just pump out elite offensive forwards like it's nothing so I would like to keep ours around. Stripping getz of the C is a bad idea.

What adversity is that? And the poor leadership stands on it's own with his performances on the ice.

Disagree with the leaders gonna lead mentality. Pretty clear Getzlaf was forced to lead if you go back and read his comments. Constantly talked about adjusting to his new role and trying to be that guy.

You can't teach Charisma and clearly he is lacking it.

Good post

Patrick Marleau to Joe Thornton to no one with the C hasn't changed anything for the better for the Sharks and can say made things worse. Sharks biggest choke job with Joe Thornton as captain and then no playoffs with no captain

No one is asking for charisma. A captain who leads by example doesn't have to have a lot of charisma (see Scott Niedermayer). Being scared and timid and not of taking charge on the ice is the problem. How can a captain who doesn't show up when it's most important expect his team to do the same?

Getzlaf won't be stripped of his captaincy, but this team is sorely lacking in leadership starting with Getzlaf (Perry and Beauchemin right behind him).

Perry did about as much as I expected out of him. I don't think he was at fault at all.

sorry I should have specified that he led us through it in the past. The first thing that comes to mind is during the regular season when he was with DSP and Borque and carried our team. I'm really hoping (is that the wrong word) that he was playing through injury because I know he has more to give us.

I wonder just how injured Getzlaf is. I'm sorta doubting he made a miraculous recovery mid-playoffs.

I feel strongly that stripping him of the captaincy to complete our transmogrification into the San Jose Sharkducks of Anaheim is an astoundingly poor idea though.

I was thinking that a few games into this series, and even last series. Even when he was putting up points, he still didn't look like the Getzlaf we have come to expect.

Of course it would be ridiculous to strip Getzlaf of the C but he has set the bar remarkably high for himself next year. A Hart Trophy candidate regular season won't do, he'll have to show up in the playoffs and, specifically, later on in tough playoff series

I think Perry is the real leader. He is not given a chance. But I think he would be a better captain.

Kesler for Captain 2015!
He was nominated for the Mark Messier award for being a top-3 leader in the NHL this season. Are you absolutely insane?

I think that fans tend to overestimate the importance of wearing a letter. Cogliano and Kesler don't need to have a letter sewn to their jerseys to provide leadership.
