Who captains Team Canada at the Olympics 2014?

Simple question, just requires a bit of foresight.

Who do you believe will captain Team Canada, assuming NHLers participate, at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi? This is also under the assumption Niedermayer retires before such a date.

The answer seemed fairly obvious to me, but this whole poll is being made due to a disagreement with a buddy of mine so, maybe it isn't such an easy answer?

Unless Crosby's injured, it's obviously him, IMO anyway. Though Hockey Canada might do something "odd" and give it to Staal or Richards or even Iggy or something.

99% chance it's Crosby. I want Toews with the C though.

Iggy if it's his last Olympics (really doubt it..)

Crosby has the best chance but Jonathan Toews could be undenied the captaincy if he becomes Canada's best two way forward, leads a successful Hawks team and the people that put the team together really can't deny how similar he and Yzerman are

I'd say Crosby, but it could easily be Toews.

Probably Iginla if he's still playing and makes the team.

But anything can happen in 4 years.

Iginla should be the captain, if he is decent enough to make the team. I think a veteran should captain the 2014 Canada team.

If Iginla still has enough left in the tank to make the team, he should get the C.

I think there's a 95% chance Crosby gets it, whether he deserves it or not.

It's pretty much going to be Crosby unless some freaky **** happens... who knows, if you had asked someone in 1998, they probably would have said Eric Lindros would be the choice for Canada's captain in 2010.

If Iginla is still good enough to make the team and have impact (and baring injuries, I think he will), I think it's him.

If not, Sid.

If Iginla is still good enough to make the team it will be him, but who knows how he will be in 4 years or even if the NHL goes.

If Iginla isn't there it will be Crosby. They will give it to Iggy if he goes out of a respect thing and the fact it would be his last Olympics and he's won 2 Golds before, so it's a respect thing.
