Well, he's overreacted to everybody's goals.

People here are enthusiastic about Prospal in part because he is a throwbackto a straka type player (little slower) and in part because his defensive responsibility and 2 way play thus far has been superb.

Gaborik, Prospal and Dubinsky are good choices but I'd give it to Staal bc he's our defensive leader.

I think the last A will go to a veteran.

Gaborik, or Prospal. My pick is Gaborik, since he's going to be here the next half-decade, and is an ex-captain himself.

I think it's a little insulting picking Dubinsky over Gaborik. Not that he's not a good candidate, but I personally can't picture Torts, or any coach, having two young guys as their alternates.

Lundqvist can't wear a letter on his jersey, so he shouldn't even be an option.

Anyone have a new opinion now that we're nearly 8 games in?

And out of curiosity would it be a bad idea to buy a Gabby jersey now from MSG if he has a decent chance of getting the (A) soon?

I'd like it to be a d-man (Staal) but I'm going with Gaborik anyway--I think at least it has to be offered to him because he's just too important to the team. If it's a d-man Staal.

Honorable mention--Dubinsky, Avery.

Take the C away from Drury, give it to Gaborik and the other A to Avery, Dubinsky or Staal.

Problem solved.

i bumped this thread to make a point.

brandon dubinsky will not get an a this season.

the way he handled his benching last night shows he still lacks maturity and thus, hes not ready to be a team leader. say what you want about shris higgins, but he faced the media. he took it like a man. dubi acted like a child.

Dubinsky, who has recorded four points (1-3) in his last nine games, was a no-show in the post-game locker room, unwilling to face questions from the press about the benching or the turnover that led to the Montreal goal that cut a Rangers' lead to 3-2

http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/range...4i5rf7sVMfqN4M

dubi held out. torts was not happy. he played well early but has cooled off alot since. hes 1/3 for 4 in his last 9 games playing top line minutes. when you think about it, thats really hard to do playing with gaby and vinny but he pulled it off. his game has really slipped.

last nights gaft, benching, and subsequent running away from the media shows hes not only not ready to lead, but might have a long term lease in torts' chateau bow wow.

and one more thing, dubi is not a 1c right now. i said it way back. ill say it again. hes a 2c perhaps and a solid 3c, right now.

the current configuration of prospal, dubi, drury and arty seems to be the best we have right now.

looks like we have prospal as out best centerman now. and hes a better winger really.
dubi is our 2c
arty should be the 3c
boyle the 4c

recall grachev and drury should be moved for anything we can get.

for this team to accomplish more than a 1st round exit, we will need a true 1c.

hello marc savard ???

Vaclav Prospal will get the second A at 12:03 pm on Friday November 27th, just before the game versus the Lightning.

I say it all the time, I can't believe the disrespect for Drury. He's probably a much better leader than Gaborik is. I'm sure if he was such a bad captain like everyone seems to think he is, Torts would've stripped him of the C when eh came in or at least this off-season.



An A to Avery but no letter for Drury, hahahaha

1. Gaborik
2. Prospal
3. Redden

These are the only players I'd even consider right now.
