I think that you don't know how to spell Timonen.

And really, is there any question that it isn't going to be Pronger?

pft i only spell/google players i think are worth while.
while reading posts on this board, at least half the people seem to want him gone


and I don't know about that Briere looks like the better choice imho,
he leads in play offs(the pep talk against buffalo that brought us back), he puts up substantial numbers in both the play offs and season. plus Pronger is injury prone, he is becoming a fragile old man.

Are you high?

This is a serious question.

I think when all is said and done Chris will wear the "C". Danny and Kimmo would not be bad options.

Assuming that is like assuming that 90% of Earth's population is white when you work in an office of 10 people, and 9 of them are white.

Anyway I voted Pronger.

They would seem to be the obvious As.

Someone is lieing about reading posts on this board. There is a VERY small contingent of people on here that want TIMONEN traded.


That being said, I expect Pronger to get the C, with Giroux getting one of the A's. Homer seems set on making it Giroux's team and I can see him gracing him with an A.

Pronger is probably in the locker room right now cutting the C and A off their jerseys. Expect to see him with CAA when he wheels himself onto the ice in October.

I'd love Briere to get it... but only because it's Danny.

My vote and common sense says "how can it be anyone but Pronger?"


That said, I also thing Kimmo and Briere gets to wear the 'A's ... and if injury/suspension Giroux gets an 'A'.

I have no idea who Timmenon is, but I voted for him. Sounds like a leader

Schenn
in his 3rd season
after being compared to Bobby Clarke by the players, fans, coaches and media alike




The Flyers automatically became Pronger's team the moment he was traded to Philadelphia, if he doesn't get the 'C', it's because he doesn't want it (which isn't going to happen)

It's weird, cos earlier in the season I said to a couple friends "Giroux could make a great captain one day"...but thought, no way, cos he's staying a Flyer, and we already have our captain........

But anyway, my heart says Danny B, my head says Pronger. I still think I would prefer danny b.

I'm a big fan of Briere and Timmonen, but how did anyone not answer Pronger?

I think its obviously going to Pronger. I personally would like to see Timonen as the captain just because he has been here longer, but I don't think it will happen. Pronger probably is the best choice though.

I would have to think Pronger, with Danny and Kimmo wearing the A's. Maybe depending on home/away games, Giroux switches with Danny? Just thinking that one day, this will be Giroux's team. I think for JVR, he has to show he can lead this team to get an A.
