    I think it's a fine decision, it's such a fresh team. I agree with a lot of the points here: the unnecessary pressure, a chance for a true leader to emerge. With such a new team there could be, by the end of the season, a captain that everyone would agree is right, that we'd never think to be captain today.

    I can’t imagine that’s remotely true. Mika doesn’t strike me as someone that shirks any challenge.

    Leetch accepted the captaincy. He gave it back to Messier when he returned.

    i wouldn't do anything to Mika for fear of taking away what he's done through the first two games. no sense rocking the boat on a team that's best case borderline playoff

    Give it to Aaron Judge! Oh wait...wrong forum!

    Nah really, I'm starting to think it's not going to be too important right now with this team. I think eventually it belongs to Kakko when his time comes....and IT WILL!
