Hab fans pick a Captain by votes (all captaincy talk here)

I think that the Habs fans here @ the Hockey Future Board for Habs is the appropriate place for this vote. Players to choose from below:

1) Andrei Markov
2) Tomas Plekanec
3) Max Pacioretty
4) PK Subban
5) David Desharnais
6) Alex Galchenyuk
7) Lars Eller
8) Brendan Gallagher

If one of the Mods can set up a poll for voting to last a week, giving everyone a chance to vote it would be much appreciated. Thanks S.Bah. It appears that people are also voting for Asst. Captains also, I will tally these votes too.

I vote for Manny Malhotra

EDIT: Just in case anyone took this seriously, I'm kidding. True answer is I don't know. I'd go with Subban personally but it's hard to say when you've never been in the dressing room.

Subban would be my choice, failing that, Pleks.

The team just signed Subban to the largest contract in Habs history. He's the ultimate class act, loves the media and the camera, can handle an insane amount of pressure, clutch playoff performer.

Not only he should get the C, he should take that stupid torch on opening night and light the whole place on fire, fireworks coming out behind him like when Lebron was introduced, WWE style.

Time to shake that boring Habs culture and into the 21st century.

Pleks - C
Markov - A
Gallagher - A

PK gets my love and recognition through his playing. He doesn't need a letter to be recognized. If he gets one, sure, I have absolutely no problem with that. But I would go with the guys I named first. And the day that Pleks leaves and is traded and/or Markov retires...Subban comes in.

Subban.

I know it's a tad too soon but IMO it would eventually be our next captain anyways.

He has everything you need/want in a real captain.

And I think giving him the "C" will make him more responsible in his on ice decisions.

Andrei Markov if he wants it. Career hab who will retire with the team and is an example of how to be a professional and work hard despite obstacles.

If he doesn't, Pernell Karl and nobody else. There is nobody else that has bonded with this city and its fan base since Roy like PK, not even Saku. He was born to play here, as Jack Todd said.

He is a class act, handles the media like no other, has an insane desire to win, a great work ethic all year round, wants to play in the most pressure packed situation, ever since his rookie season when we called him up and he was the best player on the ice in those two games vs Philly or in the playoffs vs Crosby and Ovechkin that year. From day 1, game 1, he knew he could handle it. What he did this year vs Boston, what he said, to then back it up on the ice. Nobody like him on the team.

Makes also total sense. I just feel that while not vocal, Pleks deserves it based on how a true professionnal he proved to be and how he does seem to be respected amongst his peers. PK might be a true captain as far as representation to the outside world....but I will believe that Pleks might be a true captain towards his own teamates.

Go next season with Plekanec, Markov and Subban all wearing an A. After that give the C to Subban.

I think Subban can handle the C next year, but I think it'd be a huge amount of pressure having to make sure he lives up to his contract while also having the pressure of being captain next year so would rather just have him wait a year and continue to keep improving like he has.

If it were really up to the fans to vote on that, PK would win by a landslide, no question.

IMO, he's got all what is required to be a great captain. I mean, he's really outspoken and can give an entertaining interview while still not being afraid to answer tough questions.

And yet, in all of that, you cannot even find one quote or one interview where he didn't say the right thing or embarassed himself or the organization.

And he's learning le french. The guy clearly gets it.

With that being said, I still think they'll give it to Pleky and then it's gonna be PK's time in two years. If it was up to me, I think I'd give it to PK right away, but I just don't see it happening and Plekanec would be a great C as well.

I honestly believe Plekanec will be handed the C with Markov, Pacioretty and Subban with the A.

I feel Pleks gets it because he is the one that plays any situation, with anyone, never says a word. Just head down hard work. An excellent example to follow. Not all C need to be rah rah types. Guys like Price, Subban and others can make those kinds of speeches when needed.

This is more what I expect to see and not what I really want to see.

Seeing lots of people calling for no captain next season. Out of curiosity, does anyone know the last time the Habs played a full season without someone wearing a C? Also, why do people think that's a good idea? Seems sort of pointless to me.
