Stars Captain and Alternate Captains?

With Loui Eriksson on his way to Boston who becomes the Stars captain, that's if there will be a captain this season and alternate captains? The remaining alternate captains from last year are Jamie Benn, Stephane Robidas, Ray Whitney.

I think it's safe to say Daley gets a letter.

We still need to see who gets added through free agency and trades.

I think Dallas goes with three alternates. Just like the Penguins when Lemieux retired. Crosby and two others retained their "A", but Crosby would get the "C" the season after.

But yeah, we should wait until free agency is over.

Strange to see that everybody wants Daley out of Dallas and now you give him the C or A.

I still fail to understand how people are labeling Daley as a C. That will never, ever, ever, happen.

I've never wanted Daley out of Dallas and I was likely the first to suggest Daley as a captain candidate about 18 months ago.

Give the C to Seguin. Why not. He'll probably be the team's best forward in short order.

Last year the A's were Benn, Robidas, Whitney, Eriksson. They swapped Eriksson and Whitney ever other night or during road games.

Daley going straight to C doesn't make sense.

I believe Whitney said he doesn't want to be the captain since he won't be around for very long.

Something about having one of the kids step up and take it.
I think maybe there was audio/video, but I could be wrong.

I believe that the captain will be Jamie Benn and the assistants will be Ray Whitney and Sergei Gonchar.

if robidas is on the roster, he should be stop-gap captain.

the problem with making Benn captain is that you can't really ever undo it, without killing the relationship with the player... hopefully he isn't the best player or best leader that we'll have in the next 15 years.

especially since so many project dillon to be a captain, why blow it on Benn now, and risk damaging that relationship when a true captain emerges? give it to a vet, and let the young guys grow into leaders naturally.



and for the love of god, don't go three A's this season. yeah, it's happened before, but Brenden Morrow isn't Mario Lemieux or Mark Messier. Let's not get carried away with Morrow's legacy, and act like he was such an elite all-time captain that simply can't be replaced in the annals of captaincy.

If Benn is named captain Troy McLure's head might explode.

If they go with three alternates it won't have one iota to do with Brenden Morrow. It will have to do with allowing a current player to seize that role and grow into it.

My gut says Ruff does what he did in Buffalo a few times when they had leadership turnover and go with a revolving captaincy until one guy stands out. I think Dillon is the next captain but they can't go out and name him yet. Either that, or they go with one of the geriatrics because they know their time on the team is finite.

After his lazy play this season, you better believe it.
