I would definitely give Callahan an A. It shows that if you work your behind off and lay it all out on the line, you get rewarded.

I agree. I think Drury's one year at captain was pretty atrocious. One A would go to Staal. He is the most important d-man we have and he's called on (usually anyway) to take the toughest assignments and I think our defense should be represented and why give it to Redden or Rozsival who have both underperformed to the paychecks they're getting?

One A would go to Avery--for two reasons--1) to show the team's commitment to having him here--to give him a position of responsibility on the team--something for him to live up to--he is a passionate hard working player--it would put extra weight on him controlling himself 2) to let him be a mouthpiece for the team to the on ice officials (many of whom were really screwing him last year--especially in the playoffs)--I'm sure many of them won't be very happy about it but they'll have to go through the bs of having to answer to him.

The C I would aim at Callahan or Dubinsky preferring Dubi. I think he's more the on ice and locker room leader and he has a little higher upside as a player especially if they're going to put him with Gaborik.

I would like to see Torts roll alternate captains all season long like in 05. Let Drury earn the role of captain of the New York Rangers.

Just to add--the Gomez trade might serve as a message to Drury, Redden and Rozsival that they have to earn their paycheck ot there may be consequences for them as well--Rozsival at the moment being the most vulnerable.

C- Drury
A- Gaborik
A- Staal

I like the idea of giving Staal some responsibility to see how he handles it. I also like having a captain of the defense.

Please.........Drury is the captain

A's rotate between 4.....likely Gaborik, Redden, Dubinsky, Callahan

I'm not saying they dont mean anything, but damn is the importance of the Captain's letters overstated around here.

Everybody just picks their favorite players and says they should get it b/c they're leaders. As if you're all in the locker room/know about the teams dynamic with each other.

also everybody keeps saying "drury has to EARN it"

it's an appointed position. Nobody earns it. Completely subjective based on the coach.

Gabby gets an A for sure before he even suits up for being our best player (non goalie). the other A is going to a kid I have a feeling probably cally over dubi at this point. if not it's going to Redden or Rozie...

Avery with an A possibly? He's vocal at least. And has a bit of tenure.

A lot of you are overlooking the fact that Gabo seems to have some sort of leadership abilities or they wouldn't have awarded him the C at Minnesota so I think he at least gets an A... seeing as we all know he will be the point leader on the team and probably the most targeted player on the team for any scuffles (Besides Brashear)

Meh. They rotated the captaincy like every month didn't they. Not saying he doesn't have the leadership, but who knows.

If Callahan doesn't have a letter...actually what am I talking about, 100% Callahan will have a letter on his jersey.

We've really shied away from giving a new guy a letter in the past couple of seasons; as such, I expect to see:

C - Drury
A - Callahan
A - Redden
