Tampa Bay's next Captain?

With the news today that the Lightning are going to buyout Lecavalier does this mean their next Captain will become Steven Stamkos or would they rather choose Martin St. Louis because of how long he's been there?

It's going to be St. Louis. Stamkos will get his turn.

St. Louis has a few years left and then it'll be Stamkos.

Yzerman will suit up for one more run.

Giving the C to anyone but Marty would be a crime against humanity.

I'd be surprised if it's not Marty.

forgive me if this has been talked about, im a little out of touch with Tampa Bay but why is Vinny being bought out? His stats looked pretty good last season...just looking for some insight

EDIT. NM, i read on the trade forum the reason. Terrible contract for his age...

From everything I read..long term cap space is the reason. Same reason you saw Campbell traded, Luongo on the block etc.

Stamkos. Yzerman got it earlier than him. I can't see why Marty wears it for two or three years then it goes to stamkos

I always thought St. Louis was more of the spiritual leader in Tampa Bay anyway. Vinny was a good captain and it's no knock on him, but I felt like St. Louis was "the guy," if you know what I mean, especially as Vinny began to decline and St. Louis continued to produce at a monstrous level.

St. Louis will be the next captain, unless he turns it down. Stamkos will be a good leader, but I'm always wary of giving the captaincy to a guy simply because he's the best player on the team. That's actually what happened with Lecavalier the first time he was named captain, and that didn't work out well. He had to mature before he could really handle the added responsibility.

Brewer might be a decent option as well. Not sure if he's in the long-term plans in TB, though. Ohlund could have been good but for his injuries and the fact that he's probably never going to step on the ice for them again.

I think Stamkos will. The Lightning will want to groom him as long as possible.

It would be disrespectful to not name Marty captain. Stamkos is after him.

Nobody thought Landeskog would be captain until after Hejduk retired and even Stastny was captain for a while.

It would be quite shocking if Marty wasn't given the C. He's been there the longest, has always been a leader, and is now the only one on the team with a Cup ring.
