Penner's not yet halfway into a good season which was preluded by a few stinkers.
I think if he keeps up this pace I'm happy with him continuing to be an Assistant Captain but there are people who deserve the C more than Penner.
Souray seems like the type who will get in your face if you're playing like **** and the guy who will go the extra mile to stand up for his teammates. Souray, imo, is miles and away the best option to Captain this team.
Behind Souray I might say Lubo as more of the type who leads with his play on the ice.
Horcoff always seemed way too complacent during the stretches we were losing to really make me believe he has what it takes to lead this team anywhere.
Maybe even Smid in a few years once he gets some more experience.
