How long does Phaneuf stay captain?

I fell into the category to believing we made Phaneuf captain way too soon... not that I have a huge issue with it either but I was also remembering to when Burke was praising Schenn and stated he could potentially be our NEXT captain. Do you think Schenn could become captain sooner than later? Do you think an aquisition of a player like Stammer (not gonna happen) could change the C on Dions jersey or potentially send him packing?

He'll be captain until he's moved or leaves.

He'll probably be captain for a long time, I can't imagine anyone coming in and taking the C from him anytime soon, nor do I see Schenn taking his spot.

If it's "not gonna happen", then what is the point of that point?

I now have a bruised forehead from an attempt to bang out the memories of reading this post.

I can see him being the captain for at least the remainder of his contract, then, it will be up to management and Dion to decide if he should remain a part of the team

"Not gonna happen" is just my opinion...I put it there to pose the question IF it ever were to happen

"I don't believe it will happen" is your opinion. "Not gonna happen" is pretty definitive.

There's no way they're going to strip him of the C while he's with the team. They gave him the role so he could elevate his game to match, he's been inconsistent but he needs some time. I'm not so sure we should be rushing to the Schenn coronation any time soon either. He's got 3 years of experience, one solid, one horrible, one good. He's a well liked guy on the team and fanbase, but it couldn't hurt to wait.

Yup. This will be the case... unless Dion hit's a massive wall and starts to regress like crazy. Then I could see a Buffalo Sabre situation where a few different guys get to wear the C throughout the year. I think as long as Luke Schenn is on this team, there's always that chance he will take over Dion's role in the near future..

Until he leaves. It's a saving face thing, you can't make someone the captain of an original six team and toss them out a year or two afterwards. It just looks bad and for a team with such historic captains we'll probably keep Dion purely on principle.

Proposal: Once Burke gets Stamkos (it's gonna happen), we will be the first team ever to have 2 captains.

I second this motion, when we needed a clear leader, he came to our locker room and moved the team, and the management. Wilson wouldn't just randomly put it on someone new, when we were captain less for a while without a solid reason. Schenn looks up to him and infact finds phaneuf his favourite player and role model, so till phaneuf leaves, schenn will be at best an Alternate.

Phaneuf controls the music in the dressing room. And as they say - control the music, control the room.
