Now that Murray has said that he is going to go with 1 captain and 2 alternates and no rotation. Who are your picks?

My picks:

Captain: Brown
A: Stoll
A: Handzus

Runner ups in case of injuries: Johnson and Kopitar

I think that if he is going to make Brown the Captain, Murray will want 2 veterans to be the alternates.

Why would Armstrong be an alternate when he's on the Ducks

Should be Brown, Kopitar & Johnson IMO, but it seems like Handzus might be TM's guy from back in the day.

Why should it be Handzus?
he affects the team in not a single way.
well anyways my picks are:
C Brown
A Kopitar
A O'sullivan

My reasoning is because these are our franchise players
and we need to show em respect and this is a way to show them.

We are the Los Angeles Flyers. Flyer favoritism runs rampant in our organization... What makes you think Handzus holds no favor which the coaching staff? Murray praises Handzus like crazy, he and Preissing are the only vets that will stay with the team for any length of time, 5 of his 9 seasons he has posted in the NHL he has posted over 40 point campaigns having one bad season with the Kings doesn't bury him 6 feet under, and he does have some leadership qualities. I am not saying he is the best for the job, I am saying he will be a major contender whether you like it or not because of his past.

i can understand why people think zeus and army should have it. but its time for the young guys to take over this team, it is their team after all.

Brown C
Kopi A
JJ A

The older guys can still be leaders without letters on their unis.

C-Brown
A-Frolov
A- tossup Kopitar or Johnson

I know Kopitar is our best player but it would be nice to have and A on the d-side.
Also from what I see Frolov has be supportive of his team , and is the one "core" guy that has been here the longest. Brown well we know.

C - Handzus (it's that Philly connection)
A - Armstrong (he's good in the locker room, from what I hear )
A - Pressing (I know what you are thinking - Preissing? But with the already impressive list of leaders we can't forget to throw in one more of Deano's boys )













p.s with this line-up we are sure to land the #1 spot. Hed-man is the-man!

There's a lot of votes for Stoll. I wasn't under the impression he was a leader-type. That makes me feel better about how much $$$ he's getting.

Why do people make absolute claims like this without giving reasons?

I think based on Handzus' history and veteran reputation he has a better chance than most players on the team be named at least an alternate captain.

"Best player" does not equal captain.

It was pretty widely-recognized that Stoll was on his way to becoming the next Oilers' captain before his concussion.

i think Stoll might be a candidate as he has had post season experience as well and was one of the leaders on the ice for the Oilers in the Stanley cup run.

Brown would also make a great captain imo.

Possibly Kopitar as an assistant
I think Johnson isn't there yet in terms of assuming those responsibilities.

i guess i would pick a combination of the first three.

Brown = Captain - extremely obvious


I believe it will be just one vet, just because they have talked about handing the team to the core kids, and about the vets not getting in the way.

So in my estimation, this means Handzus, because he is not stepping into a new team like Stoll. When you are building a core, you don't hand the reigns over to the new guy.


So: Hanzus = A


And lastly, I'm going to go with Frolov, just because he is the vet of the core, and needs to be recognized, and giving him more of a role will only make him more assertive, and may help get that tattoo in a little deeper. His english should be getting pretty good by now.

Frolov = A


The other runner up should be Jack Johnson.


ef Army. LOL j/k, I don't have nothing against him, and he is a solid locker guy, well liked, leadership ability, etc... but the bottom line is that this team is quickly running out of room/ and the need of his services. And I am one of those guys who thinks that those positions should be filled with talent. Guys that are respected on the ice, as well as in the lockeroom, and ideally have the ability to be game changers and/or put the team on their back occasionally when need may arise.


2 cents.
