    Assuming they trade McD....

    They shouldn’t give the captaincy to anyone if he’s traded. If they’re rebuilding have someone earn it through actual leadership and character. No sense in slapping the C on someone just because there’s a vacancy.

    No one will wear the C. Hank will be the unofficial captain until 2019-2020 when the C returns to #24...

    No one. They'll roll with alternates until the right candidate surfaces. Though, if Nash did return this summer, I'd be OK giving him the C to accompany it.

    We don't even know who's going to be on the team. How can we know who the captain is?

    No rush to name a “C” and I concur with the posters saying that it hasn’t exactly been a career positive lately.

    I could easily see Lias getting it if he makes the team. Not like McDavid in the "he is our future so you the captain" way, but from what Ive heard and read he sounds like a winner and a good captain. He also captained the Sweden U20 in the WJC.

    No one if McD is a goner and we'll go with the 3 A's for next year.

    It will be hard enough to find three A's for the next season.

    Staal.

    Give it to him the last couple of years until one of the new young guys is ready to assume the role. My bet would be Lias, but who knows.

    As much as he gets bagged on, Staal is solid enough and, as probably the last holdover from this era, he'll be a really important figure in this locker room.

    This. Team played so much better last time there was no captain. Let someone earn it.

    This was what I was coming to post. There's no sense in buying him out now or trading him with retained salary because you're not going to get enough value out of him. So keep him on the roster, slap the C on him for this year and next, then in 2020, we can readdress this. Maybe he keeps it, maybe he gets bought out then and a new captain is ready to take his place.

    Even with Mac wearing the "C", did it really matter? Mac is a very good defenseman, but as a captain....eh? He's not exactly a Messier, or even Sid in my book. If Mac is dealt, which I hope he is, so we can get this transformation rockin' already, someone should have to EARN that "C".

    Until then, Hank is the unquestioned leader of this team, no matter who wears a letter.

    Love Mac, but correct not much of a captain and no one is like Mess

    Liljegren (1st), Leivo, 2018 1st, 2018 2nd, conditional 2019 1st that becomes 2019 2nd if Leafs don't win Cup or re-sign him for Ryan McDonagh and change. Who says no?
