Give Mara an "A"

It's obvious he loves it here, he's a leader on the team, and he's playing great. I'd take one away from Gomez, he hasn't earned it.

Letter on the jersey has nothing to do with how much of a leader you are.

I mean, Rick Nash has a C on his jersey, think that means anything?

I guess you're right, but it's a nice way to recognize it.

I thought he should've gotten an "A" as soon as the season began

Staal, Girardi, Mara, Zherdev, Naslund, Callahan, Lundqvist, Betts.

Keep them, and fire the rest.

I agree with you that Mara deserves an A but if anyone hasnt earned a letter its Drury.

give mara the c.
give callahan an a.
and give dubinsky an a.
cally and duby seem to be the only 2 to ever throw a big hit to spark the team and play with some emotion.

mara just has pure heart, loves it here, and wants nothing but to win.

Mara definitely deserves an A....if it were up to me i'd consider him for the C.

i brought an icelander fan to the game last night and even he made a comment about how mara seems like the captain....talking to the refs, last one out of the tunnel etc.

love this guy, lock him up for the next 5 years.

I also think Mara should be given an A. What bothered me was when we signed Naslund, we automatically gave him the A. IMO, you should have to earn it not have it given to you.

what exactly did Gomez and Drury do to earn their letters for this team? If we were going by earning than Hank should get the C, Mara and rosy the A's.

Renney always goes with the safe option. Naslund was a Captain so he by default gets and A. Drury has been a captain and was publicized a lot in the media about deserving it so he got it. Gomez is the most lucrative contract on the team so by default he gets a letter too.

It'd be nice if he'd try something a little out of the norm, like giving the goalie a C or have a rotating C or have not C and a 3 A or 3 rotating A until someone clearly identifies themself as the leader of the team.

Nope, not Renney, same stuff again and again, take no risks, and always think inside the boundaries of the box is his style.

Just a thought.....if Girardi wore a mic last night would this thread be about him?

I really hope Mara is resigned and comes back for a couple more years.

I never said that they earned it but don't you think a guy like Mara who's been here for a season and a half and plays his heart out every game deserves it then more then Naslund having it just handed to him? This isn't a knock against Naslund but I think Mara's deserved it.

I agree. I love the way he plays the game.

Also who else thought it was hilarious when Mara skated next to Drury and screamed RAYMOND.

so does Betts. In fact i think Betts deserves it more. In fact I would love to see Mara, Betts, and Cally w/ all three letters. but its not going to happen.

I don't know, where I come from having a letter on your jersey is supposed to do with that. Maybe I'm crazy or old fashioned (I'm 23)

That's why I think the Islanders are retarded the way he gave away their captain to a free agent.

The best is when he asked Naslund "wheres my hug"

Hmm...you must not watch many Blue Jackets games. I'd go ask their fans how they feel about their captain.

I agree, The A should have gone to Mara or Betts.

I did NOT agree with Giving Gomez an A right out of the box last year either.

it should be
C Drury
A Mara
A Betts

In a way I feel I am wrong here since its his first season and all, but looking at it now, I wouldn't mind Naslund as captain.

But in responce to the OP: Yep, Mara deserves an A.
