Captain?

142 posts in this topic

Zack should be the Captain regardless of signing the long term contract this year or not. If he is only on for one, it is incentive for him, he gets to try it on and run the team and get drunk with it :koolaid: and sign the big contract later in / after the season. If he inks long term, then he is OBVIOUSLY THE guy. His work ethic is awesome and he digs in EVERY shift. He IS a role model, regardless of your age!

Why do you add an accent mark on the e?

how the frick do you even do that if you wanted to?

:noclue:

Oh fòólish pãdawàn. Só much tó léàrn still! Accénts aré fun. Nó? :whistling:

Fun fact: You can do it in the US too if you change your keyboard mapping and can remember the key combinations to produce the accents.

or use ALT codes. cool.gif

I doubt any of us know who the true leaders of the team are in the locker room. I don't care if the C is on Rolston as long as the team plays hard and wins.

I would absolutely love Elias to be captain again. I hated that my favorite skater had it for a season, then had it taken from him so quickly.

However Elias said himself that he doesn't want the "C" again, since he's already been there.

After Langenbrunner left, he said he thought Parise should be the new captain, and Elias seconded that.

If the two of them agree, then so do I. I certainly wouldn't mind Zach as the new captain. He plays a strong game, of course, and could be even stronger in the locker room and in practices for all we know.

There are a few names I wouldn't mind having the "C" as well, but Parise is at the top.

There's also one skater I absolutely do not want to see with a "C", and that's Kovy.

Now don't get me wrong - I like Kovy. But I don't see him as Captain material. He plays a strong game (when he wants to apparently. Some of my friends endearingly call him "Trollvalchuk" do to his occasional sloppy play and occasional superb play), but I cannot see him as having what it takes to be a captain. He's a great player, but he's no Scott Stevens. I'm even upset that he has an "A". I feel like they gave it to him because of how much the club went through to get him for so long and his reputation, rather than him earning it.

This is madness. Zach has to be our next captain, and hopefully announced on his re-signing as well.

No need for that.

If we really want to give it to Zach, I say we do it. What are we afraid of? Him leaving next year? So what? You give it to White and he's gone next year, too. Elias? His contract is up two years from now. So the "leaving" factor doesn't really play a big role here, IMO.

I bet it's either Zach or Patrik. I really wouldn't mind DeBoer naming Elias captain for the remainder of his career and then passing it to Parise when Patty hangs 'em up and we're sure Parise is still around, not quitting the Devils captain role for the Rangers money (how bad would it look if we gave it to him and he would don the blue next year? The thought itself is nauseating).

No to Kovalchuk serving as captain. We showed a lot of trust in this guy by letting him drag us through last summer and making him the best-paid Devil in history - adding the 'C' here would be a tad too much, and I think we have guys on our roster who look much more like captain material.

I agree with most of that. I would love for Elias to be the Captain he is deff the most qualified/deserving for it. Kovalchuk doesnt deserve it at all. Maybe in a few seasons but not this season.

I would be more then happy with Elias taking it.

Zajac is a quiet leader on the ice. He plays hard and smart. scores a few goals here and there but is a great play maker, faceoff winner, and smart 2 way player. he is our #1 center because of that ,

the best captains isnt always goal scorers.

Give the captaincy to Zubrus...guy goes out there and just puts heart into every play. Maybe not the kind of guy that would be the loudest in a room, but he lead by example.

I remember he was the only guy really playing with that flame in the first half of last season and in the playoffs against the Flyers when the rest of the team seemed to have give up already.

or give it to Brodeur !!!!!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if this is another season with three As getting rotation. Elias will act like the captain on the ice, guys like Parise and White will do their part. Then, in the spring, they'll let Marty take the Cup from Bettman.

Book it.

I don't think the Rangers will have enough cap space to sign Parise. They just signed Richards to a huge deal. I've looked at CapGeek and I think the only way the Rags will have good enough space is if they make some real changes, like dealing Dubinsky and Callahan.

I dunno, I'm inclined to think that a new coach would want another figurehead for the team to look to for leadership. Even though it's just a letter on the chest, it's still something.

I think it's time for Parise to get it, I really do.

White had the "A" temporary and is a locker room leader for the younger guys. He may not put up alot of points but I wouldn't doubt him having an A or even C If Elias refuses it and Parise doesn't get it. But guess this isn't happening now.

Elias with only two years to go don't think he would take it or even accept the captaincy now. Knowing Patty he would say give it to one of the other players that will be here for a longtime. Zach Parise I think will get the captaincy if not then Kovalchuk. Both players will be around (still believe Parise will get that longterm contract extension)for a longtime and finish their careers here. Elias would be a good captain once again but his career is coming to an end in 2-years.
