Kings Captain/Assistants! Your Choice!

I've been thinking about this lately and it was brought up again to me today from someone.

Will Norstrom stay the Captain? He's a fantastic player, but vocally I don't know if he's what the Kings need for Captain. Perhaps slapping a big A on his jersey would be better.

Who would you want to see as Captain and the 2 Assistants?

Personally, I would like to see Luc become Captain. He, to me, is the definition of the Kings.
Obviously JR being so new, I wouldn't do the Captain thing there, but I would make him an Assistant with Norstrom.

Nortstrom will most likely remain Captain, but the 2 A's might be up in the air. We'll see!

Matty IS the Los Angeles Kings Captain.

Matty - C
Luc- A
JR - A

But, I can see Matty offering Luc the C for his final season, then it would be

Luc - C
Matty - A
JR - A

Alternate A = Armstrong

If Craig Conroy doesn't have an 'A', then the coaches don't know how special of a leader they're getting.

In all seriousness, though:

C - Avery
A - Bure
A - Visnovsky

Agree with RIAL.

Norstrom - C
Robitaille - A
Conroy - A

The Kings tend to go with more than 2 A's, so possibly:

C - Norstrom

A - Robitaille
A - Klatt
A - Miller
A - Roenick/Conroy

I'd like to hear the reasons why people feel JR deserves an 'A' over Craig Conroy.

It only makes sense if you're an advocate of your best players getting the letters on their jerseys, but that's simply not right.

Roenick's not a leader.

Roenick's not a winner.

Roenick doesn't lead by example.

Roenick whines.

Roenick shoots his mouth off when it should be closed team affairs.

You people are going to love Conroy, though... Mr. Hockey!

I'd like to see Luc wearing a "C". I often make fun of his game, but his dedication is unquestionable. Nordstrom is not my choice.

I can see Conroy developing into an assistant, but he would have to play a few games first. Same goes for Roenick.

Klatt is too nice. That can't be good

Mattias Norstrom, however, would make a fine captain for you folks. Wouldn't you agree?

You don't just strip the former Captain of his status without just cause. Matty will be the captain unless he gives it up.

Matty does his talking on the ice. He's more of a 'lead by example' type of captain.

C: Matty
A: J.R.
A: Luc
You could also throw Conroy as a A as well. Would be tough to choose between J.R., Luc, and Conroy for who gets the A's.

Why choose? Why not all three? Haven't the Kings had as many before?
