Who will be the captain of Team USA?

USA Hockey announced that they would be naming the captain tomorrow afternoon. Who do you think it will be?

Patrick Kane, of course.

But real talk, it's nothing more than a ceremonial honor for a tournament like this.

The other 4 will get A's and they will do the stupid home/away rotation thing.

First person that came to mind for some reason is Paul Statsny, so I went with someone else.

Hope it's Stastny, think it should be Suter, but it'll be Parise.

Probably Parise. I'd like Backes or Suter.

Personally, I feel the national team captain should be the captain of his NHL team. I'll be fine if it's Callahan, Backes, or Brown.

Makes me sick that Brown is even on the team, let alone in the captaincy conversation. He's been awful.

C - Inglorious Backes
A- Suter
A- Parise

In a tournament like this you want the captain and alternates to be guys who are going to be on the ice the most as they will be the ones talking to the refs.

Almost all of these guys are leaders on their own clubs so it's not a huge deal.

I'm cool with either Backes or Suter. I do think it should be Backes though

Definitely not Brown or Parise

There is an Olympics subforum for these kinds of threads.

To give my opinion, I think I'd rather see Backes over all of the rest. He has more intensity to his game than Suter for sure, and that's something the Americans are going to be looking for if we can take Burke's comments about Ryan and give them some worth. Suter is probably the next on the list simply because of his hockey smarts.

I want it to be Backes. I have a feeling it will be Brown with Suter an A and then Backes and Parise will alternate the other one.
