    Twitter memes were funny.

    I'm not one for giving the "C" to Kreider. He hasn't demonstrated a full season's worth of leadership just yet. Always talks a good game at the beginning of the season but his on ice effort wanes. Zucc is the most likely leader from this bunch but as others have mentioned...does he survive the trade deadline?

    I don’t care about a C, I just think they should have more guys wearing As, like 12 or 13.

    They don't want captain because he will most likely get traded by the deadline.

    I think it’s telling that Hayes didn’t get an “A”. I kind of wish they did like what other young teams did and have rotating “A”’s.

    What this tells me is that Staal is pretty clearly the de facto captain. Might not be a bad idea, either. For all he lacks on the ice, off it, there's probably not a more model citizen for teaching young players to be pros.

    Agreed
    Being a leader isnít simply how one performs on the ice

    I agree. He has been one of the go to guys on the team by the media and he is always talking to the refs.

    They should have a wheel, and spin it before games to pick the A's

    You don't need a letter on your sweater to be a leader.




































    So we'll give everyone a letter.

    The NHL video games don't even let you have 5 A's, it's so ridiculous. A fantasy draft option exists but multiple alternative captains are never implemented haha.

    I think you go with 5 As if you think 1 or 2 of these guys might get traded by the trade deadline.
