Why should Gaborik get an A? Just bc he's the most talented?

He wore a "C" for the Wild, so he must have some leadership abilities.

Definitely love the Callahan choice though, if it goes that way.

With Gaborik being our offensive leader for the next 5 years, I'm fine with that choice, especially when the others options are Rozsival, Redden and Prospal. I wouldn't give the two As to our young guns right now, that's too early.

The letter on the jersey is over rated.

Callahan and Gaborik. I think if Dubinsky doesnt hold out he probably gets the other A.

Totally agree. I think the only time a C or an A has a significant impact is when it's taken away from a player.

I always assumed it would be Prospal and one of Redden/Rozy.

I guess I'm in the minority in expecting that...

Don't forget Dubinsky. He's the real leader of the young players.

dont bother. No matter who's chosen, many here will believe its life and death and after a losing streak you'll hear that Drury or somebody else doesn't "deserve" or didnt "earn" their letter.

i agree, and i don't understand their logic. hockey is a sport where losing streaks seem to be attributable to injury, conditioning, play in a poor system for the current roster, play in a poor system for matching up with the opposition league-wide, and timing. Hardly ever do I notice entire teams having heart issues (outside of teams that don't stress conditioning, and therefore suck on road trips or crunch time late in games). I really don't know what any player is expected to say in practice/lockerroom/media to change that.

I tend to think the captain staff should be made of players that exemplify the team's current concept. Conditioning, attitude, knowledge, production, temperment, passion that the front office/coaching staff wants to instill throughout their organization. That's primarily why I'd be all for a captain staff of:

C- Callahan
A- Dubinsky
A- Staal

That's the staff of a team with a ton of heart, skilled players that play physical and don't back down, play in the dirty areas of the ice, creative in open ice, show up in great shape to begin camps, are professional when dealing with the media, and don't seem to ever ego trip (unless you consider Dubi's holdout ego tripping, which I honestly don't).

Not to mention all home-grown, drafted and mentored within this organization, which sends a signal to the scouts and AHL staff, that they did some good work, and keep it up. The captain's staff should be exemplary to the entire organization, not just the fans and the players.
