Ethan Moreau Should Be Captain!!

This guy has been the best player thru the first 8 games....he's a leader. Strip the "C" off Smith and slap it on Moreau. Then trade Comrie, Salo and Brewer in a package deal. Then ship Larock and Izbusted off somewhere. While we're at it....fire Mctavish and let Simpson Coach this Team.....arrghhh!! I know its only 8 games, but I really cant see this Team improving much. 2 tough Home games gainst Columbus and Detroit...then a 6 game road trip?! We are in trouble...

As hard as Ethan works out there the player that we have that truly bleeds the copper and gold is Smyth. Smyth; captain, Moreau and Staios Assistants.

I would split my leadership for Home and Away Games...

Home
C- Ryan Smyth
A- Jason Smith
A- Marty Reasoner

Road
C- Steve Staios
A- Ethan Moreau
A- Mike York

then i would resign as coach.

Remember how bad this team was to start last season?

We are missing our best (well I guess Hemsky is that... so second best) offensive player, and beleive it or not, that will take a lot of pressure off guys who are trying to hard to score, and not focusing enough on defense.

Take the Calgary game for instance... the Oilers were killing a penalty, but were trying way to hard to score... it ended up resulting in a 3 on 1 the other way.

A. Moreau doesn't take lots o fbad penalties. He is tough and gritty and sometimes in the corners that will lead to penalties - but he certainly hasn't taken enough bad penalties to warrent that comment (especially compared to how bad the Oilers have been).

Moreau IMO isn't the captain. BUT Smith isn't either. It is VERY VERY clear that Smytty is this teams leader - but because MacT loves the defensive minded guys he made Smith the Captian. His play has suffered since he got the "C" - and I would love to see him with an A instead. Ryan is definately ready to take over as captain, and IMO Smith won't be around after this year so he will get it - unless by some outside shot Moreau does.
