It won't be this but it should be:

2 "A"'s not 4.

Pronger with one
Lappy with the other.

If I had to pick 2 it would be Pronger and Timonen.

If they go home/away like last year add Carter and Briere.

I prefer
C - Richards
A - Lappy
A - Timonen
A - Pronger
A - Carter

I'm not a huge fan of Carter, but I don't know who else I'd consider.

Leighton?
O'Donnell, Briere, Giroux, maybe Zherdev I heard he is a pretty good leader.

I'd rather they stop rotating and just go with Pronger and Timonen. But if they do roll with the home/away again, I'd like to see one of Lappy or Briere get the other.

On topic:

I hope they give Pronger and Briere the A's and just leave it at that, but if they rotate I say Pronger/Lappy for away and Briere/Timonen for home

There's no way they should take the A away from Carter. If they do bring in another A, I'd give it to Briere.

Exactly. Carrying the team on his back offensively again is all the leadership we need from Carter.

Yeah, I change my mind.

C - Richards
A - Pronger
A - Timonen

Carter gets the A in case of injury.

Take the C from Richards and give it to Carcillo. Hartnell and Shelley would get the A's.

I wish no ill towards Holmgren, just that he steps down and lets a non retarded person take his position to stop the bleeding, but I hope that guy, the one who said that, chokes on a ****ing dick.

Carter is by no means a better leader than Timonen or Pronger. You need guys who can address the dressing room and get into guys faces when necessary. If you are looking for someone to scope out the local bar scene or where the chicks hang you go to Cartsie....leadership look no further than Timonen and Pronger, do not fool yourself, this is Prongers team.

Yeah, more like:

Holmgren: In conclusion, this was purely a hockey move. Matt Walker is a warrior and 4th rounders are invaluable.

PR guy: HAHA! Quick and painless! *drops papers and goes to high five the other PR guys*
