One More Offseason Topic: Zajac's Number Retired One Day?

I'd have to disagree with the captaincy. Assuming Hall is re-signed, he's the leader. There's no point in putting it on Zajac who is only a year younger than Greene. 

I'd love for Hall to earn the "C", he's the guy you want to be it in your heart of hearts. But the fact is, in hockey, the captaincy is special and it means more than just being vocal in the locker room. You gotta not only be a leader on the ice and off, but, in my opinion, you have to own your community as well. I haven't seen that from Hall. Hall hasn't even stated that he wants to stay here yet. It's possible by the time he re-signs that he gets there but for now, yeah, I'll go with the guy who is approaching 1000 games with the team and has been a team leader for many of those years - and has always fully bought in to what it means to be a Devil. Zajac most likely won't have his number retired but a good way to honor him would be with the "C" in his final year(s) with the team.

I think I have said this multiple times, but to be honest, none of us are in the locker room and none of us know who is and is not a leader. None of us have the slightest qualification to suggest who should or shouldn't be captain.

That said, I would not give it to Zajac at this point. There is no point in giving it to a guy who may only be around another season or two. Figure out which of these young guys is the leader and give it to that guy, whether that be Taylor Hall or someone else.

I mean, Hall straight up asked for Hughes locker to be placed next to his, that sounds like leader/captain material to me...

 That’s true. Then again, he has not committed to playing here beyond this year. If you wants to put pen to paper, I’d consider it.

I wouldn’t have a problem with it if it did happen, but I don’t think it’s necessary. He was on the roster for a really long time, mostly when the team was sh!t. 

I would be fine with the Ring of Honor, but so far we have one dude in there, it’s not so much a “ring” of anything. 

This is precisely how I feel.

Then I retract all of it because it must be wrong.

sh!t, I walked right into that one.  

What if I said I also feel you're a wonderful, intelligent, and thoughtful human being? Guess I'm wrong :D

Human being part is up for debate, the rest, not so much.
