No disrespect to Drury, I think he's a fine player and a decent captain when compared to other C's around the league, but he should be stripped of it after this year and it should be given to Callahan.

Cally exemplifies Ranger hockey and the team we supposedly "want to build," and if that's the case, build it the correct way by promoting him to captain.

Staal should keep the 'A' and Drury can have one too, it really isn't a big deal as there are plenty of leaders on the team I'm sure. However, even if we re-up Drury at the end of his contract for a fraction of the cost, he shouldn't remain captain "just because".

Cally C, Dubs A easy
Boyle or Prust the last A?
I lean towards Boyle because I want him to have a self important dominant feeling, to own the ice...all 6'7 of him.
...yet it's also easy to say Prust will eventually die a longtime Ranger if he keeps it up. Always shows up, seems worthy of an A IMO. (Honorable mention to Feds who also always shows up, but not as much for a letter necessarily)
I would give it to Avery, but he couldn't argue/discuss much from the box with striped people who are out for him. Avery doesn't need the letter to be a team leader anyway, he just needs to play like the blue collar fan favorite he already is.

Staal, good D-man, have no idea about his leadership skills.

Right now -
C - Callahan
A - Staal
A - Dubinsky


2012 (when Drury's gone)
C - Callahan or Stepan
A - Staal
A - Callahan, Dubinsky or Stepan
(hopefully, it depends on what player and leader Stepan will become)

The coach is the personality on this team, it would be too much of a clash with too many strong personalities trying to lead this team. And who cares how he interviews. I want the guy that exemplifies the ideal hockey player. He doesn't take a shift off, he isn't selfish, he wants to win and he understands the system. And just because a certain guy is captain doesn't mean other guys don't make an imprint on the team. Just being a tenured veteran earns you some cache with the other guys.

I voted Dubi. His personality is different from Staal and Cally. I think he could turn into a great captain.

Callahan and Dubinsky would both be great choices. I went with Dubinsky because he's my favorite player. Good a reason as any I suppose.

I voted for Callahan. Since the poll asks who the next captain will be, not who you want the next captain to be. I also want Staal.

Remember back when we used to argue over whether the future captain would be Garth Murray or Jed Ortmeyer?

Oh boy.

Dubinsky needs to depend his voice and stop kissing people to become captain, but I still voted for him. He does it in every end of the ice and he even drops the gloves, gotta love the kid!!!

IMO only reason why Callahan ended up with an A and Dubinsky didn't is because Cally had arbitration rights and Dubinsky didn't so he had to hold out and it's carried over to this day.

I don't get it either. I mean, the number of reports I have read about Dubi's immaturity, his calling Luc Richardson a ***** to get him to fight a couple years ago (BTW, Richardson could be his father), holding out. Not the marks of a captain.

If Drury is bought out, Cally will be the captain. There isn't anyone else in the conversation. Staal will get one 'A' and the other will depend on who is still around after the season.

I think Dubinsky would be a better leader than Callahan.

Cally is a lead by example guy, and would be a great captain -- except we currently have a "lead by example" guy in Drury and I think we need a more vocal/personality guy. Dubi is certainly a personality, moreso than Cally is.

Dubi hates Crosby, is willing to drop the gloves to defend teammates, has demonstrated skill in scoring in tight situations, and seems like he's well liked by his teammates.

Cally can be just as good of a captain, don't get me wrong -- but I rather have a more personality than a real hard working blue collar, lead by example grinder captain like we currently have (sorta). Callahan isn't very vocal or articulate (hearing his interviews) -- not knocking the guy, but Dubinsky is a bit more vocal and he gave that very candid assessment last year about what he thought of Sidney.

Dubinsky would be a great C, as he'd bring some brashness and swagger to broadway.

callahan WILL be the next captain, that's more or less a fact at this point whether you like it or not, want it or not.

It's not a question of who you WANT.

Cally's the best interview on the team- he's more articulate than everyone except maybe EC who's ridiculously deliberate in what he says.

Robot? Compared to Drury, he's Jim Carey. At least Cally smiles and doesn't talk in monotone. No, he'll never say the wrong thing, but he's honest and committed to the team. He's a lot like Jeter in the way he handles the media.

When Torts was giving out A's last year, Cally was the only one who got one and we went without a 2nd A for a while. Cally is always held up as the example for Rangers' hockey. He will be the next captain, no doubt about it.
