I'd prefer someone who played well in either of the past two playoffs.

gotta be Vanek. Not sure how leading the line in the handshake justifies the C on your chest. A lot more responsibilities than that

I'd give Vanek the C before Myers.

Who gives a rat ass about the captaincy or the C in your chest. Give it to Vanek but there are way more concerning issues than the captaincy.

I don't think Vanek is captain material.

I think Myers will be but I also think he is too young at this point.

C - Myers
A - Vanek
A - Pominville

I'd be fine with that. I just don't know if Myers is ready yet.

no way he was AWFUL in this series, still needs to grow his game mentally and slapping the C on him may hinder that. I'd give it to Vanek with Poms and Roy getting A's

This.

How about we "unofficially" give Miller the C and have a bunch of home/away "A"s.?

I'm in since Miller is the de facto captain anyway.

My thoughts as well.

I was thinking Gaustad or Pominville.

I echo the sentiment that Myers is too young. It's probably Hecht right now, honestly. I love what Vanek did this year, but I don't know enough about the locker room to know if he's considered one of the leaders.

Im not in the locker room, but it should be whoever is the leader in the room. And if its no one, then blow this team up.

That would be Miller but they're not making him captain.

I got the sense from comments by Ruff and others that Vanek has taken steps in that direction this year.

I think it'll be Vanek but there's an argument for Hecht too.

I think we all saw how important Jochen is tonight. He's a force on the puck and supremely well-respected. He also might not be on the team in another couple of years, which is a reason I'd lean toward Vanek.

Myers will get it eventually. He's not ready yet.

I just simply think there isn't a good enough leader on this team (current roster) to wear the C. Just my opinion. I will not try to convince you so save your keystrokes.
