Myers looks big, I really hope he bounces back this year. Even 30 points and solid defensive play and I'll be happy with that kind of progression.

He said he'll rotate it in preseason and decide on it before the season-opener.

I'm banking on Weber.

Lol, if Weber is picked as captain, I'll really start to question whether Jame is in cahoots with the Sabres organization or something.

Maybe Ehrhoff.

I think Rolston may not want to name a guy who's otherwise on his way out the door, because he's going to be fighting to stick around himself. The two might have nothing to do with each other, but I think Rolston wants to be selecting a leadership group that have his stamp on them and will stick around with him.

I'll question everyone.

So captain right before opening game? Cool cool.

After the final preseason game we should put up a poll for everyone to guess who they think will (not should) be named, for bragging rights.

I say Hodgson is named Captain. He becomes Rolston's and the organization's guy to lead the new core. Eventually Girgensons and Pysyk will be the Alternate's.

I really think it'll be Vanek. The thinking from the coach there would be that he's the best and longest-tenured skater on the team. The fact he's likely gone after this season could be seen by them as more a positive than a negative, in that they can replace his captainship without controversy with one of our "young future leaders" who might be more ready by then.

I don't think it would be an awful choice. You're not asking Weber to lead this team to a Stanley Cup - you're asking him to play his game, hold his teammates accountable and stick up for them, all while wearing a 'C' on his sweater.

As soon as one of Hodgson/Foligno/Girgensons is ready to take on a bigger leadership role, you give it to them.

He'd be the captain Jason Smith was in Philly before Richards, Adrien Aucoin was in Chicago before Teows, Mark Streit was for the Isles before Tavares, etc.

He'd be the captain Salvador is in Jersey right now.

Weber captained his junior club in Windsor - it's not out of the realm of possibility.

I think you could safely argue that all those players were more accomplished at that stage in their career than Weber is right now. If you give it to Weber, that's probably a three-year commitment--the length of his current deal. My concern is that he isn't able show enough consistency over an 82-game season to stay in the lineup, and we have Craig Rivet 2.0.

My vote is for Ehrhoff. Alternatively, I wouldn't hate if they slapped it on Myers in a sink-or-swim move.

Increases trade value with perceived leadership abilities.

I'm good with Ehrhoff, Vanek or Otter.

Choosing teal was an obvious wasted opportunity to make an all-grey jersey

Lol. Weber captain. Why do people think this? He's not a guarantee to be a regular for 82 games. I like the Vanek plan, chance to reset when he's traded or maybe it'll help to resign. Either way, he deserves it.
