Captain my Captian

Post by Hockey Widow » Tue Apr 03, 2018 8:14 pm

Ok, so who will be the next Canuck captian?

Will it be Bo, Gudbranson, Sutter or even Edler?

My vote, our top line centre, John Tavares!!

If not him, then Sutter.
The only HW the Canucks need

Pregame Thursday, Bo gets the C

Bubbles calls it cancer.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

My personal preference would be no Captain for next year.

The way this fan base and the local media were (I.e. Can't handle a rebuild), why give them any extra thing to whinge about, especially if it's a young guy that becomes the target.

Not a bad thought.

Regardless, if it's anyone other than Bo right now they are making a huge mistake.

Edler just isn't the kind of leader we need, although his play the last 2 months has been outstanding.

Sutter or Gudbranson.....that was a good one Wids. :lol:

Nope. I try to be objective. Edler has been very good since mid February. He's eating a ton of minutes too.

But I don't want him as a captain because the team needs a fresh direction and needs to start playing with emotion again.

Oh God I hope the team doesn't turn this into some cringeworthy public spectacle. Leave it for a press conference in the fall.

According to rule 6.1 -
Rule 6.1 states: "One Captain shall be appointed by each team, and he alone shall have the privilege of discussing with the Referee any questions relating to interpretation of rules which may arise during the progress of a game."

In addition to the captaincy holding a defined role, there are other, intangible parts of the job. It's the captain who is seen as the team leader, counted on to be accountable to the media and in most cases the public face of the franchise as well as a link between the coach and players.
I already see Bo Horvat being groomed for this position, he's one of the hardest workers on the team, always in the gym, smart guy, plays in all situations and he talks to media all the time already like a Captain, he will have 4 years of NHL pro experience after this season and is locked up on a term contract.
Random Hitchcock quote:
“Whenever you lose leaders of your locker room, the quickness that you replace them [with] is important for you to maintain a really high competitive level,” coach Ken Hitchcock told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after former captain David Backes signed with the Boston Bruins.
Horvat will even throw down if need be.


:thumbs:
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Considering the toxic nature of the Vancouver media and fan base, it might make it more attractive for a guy like Tavares if we promised NOT to give him the "C". :lol:

It won't be Guds but could be any of the other three. Depends who picks. If it's the team, well that team will not exist until October and they will pick Bo.
If Green picks, I think he too picks Bo.
If Trevor is in it, then Edler may be the call but I think he'll say no-thanks.
If it's Sutter then I think we have a case of: (wait for it)........................

One of the major downsides of the twins quitting now.

I think both Horvat and Boeser might be captain material, but it feels way too early to give either of them the C now.
One more season with Hank at the helm would have been great to ease them into it.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
Except when donating blood.
