Who will be the next Thrashers captain?

Who do you think will be the next Thrashers captain? Who do you want?

I hope Antropov is the next captain. He is a true leader that this team never had. I get the impression that he loves it here, literally. He will go out of his way to convince and talk to Afinogenov and Kubina about re-signing here so that makes me believe he is a believer in this team. He cares about winning and shows it on the ice. No one on this team deserves it more than Nik Antropov. If this off-season works out starting with the draft, we could be real contenders lead by Antropov's Thrashers.

Isn't that like asking who is the next Thrasher to be traded? I mean being made captain of this franchise is like the kiss of death?

Pretty much.

Kelly Buchberger: Was only here one season, in the downside of his pretty meh career. Left for LA. Only played 68 games in a Thrash sweater.

Steve Staios: Left afterward. Nearly lost Edmonton the SCF in game 5 of the '06 year.

Ray Ferraro: Wasn't bad, but in his captain year had the wheels fall off completely. Was traded to STL and then retired.

Shawn McEachern: Was last seen being bounced up and down between Providence and Boston. Never reached his career high totals in Ottawa here.

Scott Mellanby: NEVER AGAIN.

Bobby Holik: Was ok, I guess. He was in his 30s when he was here but looked like he was in his 50s.

Ilya Kovalchuk: Welp.


All signs point to Antropov with the C unless someone comes over as a UFA or traded guy.

Captain- Raptor Jezus
Assistant- Nik
Assistant- Jim
Assistant- Marty

I think we should steer clear of giving leadership entitlements to teenagers so Gucci Kane doesn't get an "A" this year. Zach deserves to have his stripped as well, I'm 22 years old and even I think that it would be ridiculous for even someone my age to be a Captain in the NHL.

I was going to say Kubina if he re-signs but I think Antropov has been so impressive in the 2nd half of the season with his leadership skills that he deserves the C.

He has even taken on Kovy's role is recruiting players, as he said he will have a word to Kubina and Afinogenov about re-signing.

C - Antropov
A - Hainsey
A - Bogosian
A - Reasoner
A - Kane

I would give Slava's 'A' to another veteran and Reasoner seems to be a popular choice. I don't expect Army to be back but I would give his 'A' to a younger player so we have a good mix of youth and experience in leadership positions. Kane is a future captain and I don't think it will burden him too much to wear a 'A' next season. Yes I know Bogosian had a difficult season after inheriting an 'A' after one season but I'm sure he will learn from the experience and make him a better leader.

Marty Reasoner is the only choice. That guy has done more for this club and given up his body since he got here.

Antro / Hainsey / Bogo as the A's.

I hate how we always have 1C and 4 A's rotating. I prefer having 1C and 2 A's. I think Antropov should be our next captain.

While I think the C/A thing is a bit overrated, I agree with you here. Maybe we can give the whole team A's on a rotating basis.

If we're going with the generally accepted notion that giving a player the C starts the clock ticking for his time left with the franchise, then by all means lets give it to Hainsey.


Or Todd White.


Hell, can we make Waddell the captain?
