Crosby is the golden boy of Canada. No way in hell he's not Captain.

So, he because he scored the winning goal he should be Captain? What if Thorton had scored it should he then be Captain. What about the fact that he was invisble through the rest of the tournament? No doubt Crosby is one of the best players in the world and if choosen isn't a bad selection as there really in no bad selection reguardless of the player choosen due to the players on team Canada. But just because your the best player(offensive) doesn't mean you should instantly be captian. Nor does it mean that you are a great leader.

It'll be a mistake if it isn't Crosby.

It seems a lot of people are forgetting that Crosby wore an 'A' during a few games in the 2010 Olympics. This was Team Canada setting up him getting the 'C' in 2014 I believe.

In 2010
Niedermeyer 'C'
Pronger 'A'
Iginla 'A'
Crosby 'A'

In 2014
Crosby 'C'
Toews 'A'
Weber 'A'

If Crosby happens to be out with an injury, Toews will get the 'C'

I agree. Crosby is the best player in the NHL and the face of Canadian hockey (even though he plays in the US). He deserves to be the captain most.

Dark horse for at least an A: Patrice Bergeron.

It's close. Based on the experience and being the one to get the Golden goal in 2010, Sid should get the nod. Besides the fact that he's been the long-time captain of a perennial playoff team has won a cup, he's seen it all firsthand and was not to be denied in the clutch. Without that golden goal though, I would go with Toews.


However if Niedermayer were still around, he would be the obvious choice. Gold winning captain > Golden goal scorer.
