not sure why this would have anything to do with Gomez other than you can only have one captain (or, I should say, should only have one captain) and Drury's a better choice than Gomez. As for Shanny - no takeaway here. Drury will likely be here for the next few seasons. It makes sense to name a captain that the organization feels will be here for a while, instead of changing captains every season, especially for a young team that hopefully will grow together.
Huge Chris Drury fan. But, I don't think he's going to be named captain. Not that he is not worthy, but I think the team is going to go with 3 alternates to start. My guess is Drury, Gomez, and Redden. I think the team is going to let the captain emerge among the three.
Shanahan would never have been named captain, he would only be here for a year. Drury will finish his career a Ranger and he should be named captain. Gomez doesn't have the same "Captain-esque" qualities that Drury has, he is more fun loving where Drury is more intense. Both seem to fit their styles. My guess is that Gomez and either Rozsival or Redden are given A's.
