There's no way Gomez becomes captain. He already has the pressure to produce. Markov won't either, he's not a captain and can't speak to the media. The way I see it, Gorges, Cammalleri and Gionta are the most likely candidates. It will go down between Gorges and Gionta IMO.
I keep going back to Game 5 against Philly, our last game of the season, and remembering Gomez was the bonafide leader on the ice, everyone was counting and looking to him to make the plays.
That to me, speaks volumes more than speculation on who is the better leader.
Gomez is as much a candidate as anyone in the room.
