Sabres to name captain at team dinner tonight

Quote:
HELSINKI, Finland -- The Buffalo Sabres will have a team captain tonight.
Coach Lindy Ruff closed his morning news conference in Hartwall Arena by saying he will announce his captain when the team gathers for dinner tonight in Finland's capital city.
The Sabres have not had a "C" since sending Craig Rivet to Columbus at last season's trade deadline. Those in contention for the job include Thomas Vanek, Derek Roy, Robyn Regehr, Jason Pominville, Paul Gaustad and Tyler Myers.

No more C's to 1-2 year teammates (no matter how long or short there stay , should be earned over time) , please pick Vanek/Roy/Pommers

agreed. I would still like to see Tyler get it though, for various reasons.

I am a fan of vanek, roy and pommers, but none of them scream captain material.

I say make a statement and give it to myers.

Unless troll Lindy announces that Thomas Vanek will be the captain....for October.

Lindy:

Problem, Sabres fans?

Unless they're actually in Florida and wearing black socks with their shorts, it's not dinner time yet.

If Lindy is appointing a captain (and not having the players vote, as this makes it seem), that pretty much removes Regehr from consideration. He'll get one of the 4 A's but won't be handed the C.

Real question is which of those six guys DOESNT get a letter?

I'm on the Vanwagon for C but my guess is Pominville or Gaustad.

I'd say two guys won't get a letter. Whoever wrote that was speculating because Jochen Hecht I'd say is also very much so in contention (but the more-than-likely choice to get one of the A's).

Hecht getting an A is a definite, I feel.

I dont think Lindy would give it to Jochen at this point. After Rivet I'm guessing he wants a captain who's actually IN the lineup more often than not.

You're probably right about an A, though.

Better yet, Lindy announces Regehr is the captain for October, followed by Ehrhoff in November, Boyes in December, and Leino in January.
The others will be determined after we obtain them closer to the trade deadline.


Problem with rotating captaincy given to new acquisitions, Sabres fans?

Looking forward to the announcement, just so I can read another 10 page thread full of people who will question the decision and think they know better.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that whoever is named to captain the Sabres is the wrong chooice.

I would love Myers, but its between Vanek and Poms. I think poms.

Does anyone think Gerbe has a chance? I think he is the wildcard.

If it isn't Vanek, expect at least 20 pages. Over/Under on the first post number in which someone claims Ruff hates Vanek: 19.5. I'll take the over. Just barely, though.

Not as a C. I think Gerbe, Staff, and Kaleta have outside shots at an A.

It may be feast or famine for Vanek. I could envision him getting the "C", but I could also see a scenario where he doesn't get a letter at all. For example, Poms could get the "C", and the alternates could be Roy, Gaustad, Hecht, Regehr. I think we all realize that Poms, Gaustad, and Roy are locks for a letter.

That said, I think it'll be:

C-Pominville/Vanek
A-Vanek/Pominville
A-Gaustad (definitely getting a letter)
A-Roy (definitely getting a letter)
A-Hecht

I'd imagine, with 5 letter-bearers, Ruff wants at least one d-man. Myers, Regehr, or Leopold.

I really want something fresh and new, Poms and Vanek just dont do it for me.

Regehr or Hecht would probably be Ruff's choice, but I dont think it will be one of them now.

I would love to be surprised with who they pick.
