My predictions for the eight vacancies:

 

NY Islanders: Tavares. DUH

 

Dallas: Jamie Benn

 

Ottawa: Jason Spezza

 

Buffalo: Tyler Myers

 

Columbus: RJ Umberger

 

Calgary: Jiri Hudler

 

Tampa Bay: Steven Stamkos

 

Edmonton: Taylor Hall

 

I'm completely joking about Calgary. It will probably remain empty. That franchise is on a sad path. Too bad we can't beat them.

 

Who do you guys think will fill the empty captain vacancies?

Islanders - Tavares

Dallas - Robidas

Ottawa - Phillips

Columbus - Dubinsky

Calgary - Giordano

Buffalo - Stafford

Tampa - St Louis

Edmonton - Hall

 

 

Not sure about a lot of these.  Many depend on whether the team rewards seniority, or wishes to make some younger player captain for the future.    


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

My predictions for the eight vacancies:

 

NY Islanders: Tavares. DUH

 

Dallas: Jamie Benn

 

Ottawa: Jason Spezza

 

Buffalo: Tyler Myers (benched all season)  Vanek

 

Columbus: RJ Umberger or Gaborik

 

Calgary: Jiri Hudler cause the Flames have no captain material...

 

Tampa Bay: Steven Stamkos

 

Edmonton: Taylor Hall   :lol:   Eberle dude....

I like this aside from Hall.  He's not a leader at all.  I'd go with the clutch kid Eberle all the way.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

Tough to say for me.  I just know they're a young team, but I don't know what goes on behind closed doors (no I didn't watch that Oil Change show on NHLN  :confused:

 

Maybe he is a bad leader.

Assuming he said in his original post "I'm completely joking about Calgary" i'd assume so.

 

I think Tyutin will get a look in Columbus, other than that I agree with most of the other here. I think Wideman or Cammalleri realistically for Calgary but who knows with that squad.

Agreed however Wideman over Cammalleri in Calgary.

 

I thought Feaster was shopping Cammalleri?

 

I guess it wouldn't surprise me if Mike ends up captain cause yes it's a mess in Calgary....

I would have said Whitney for Edmonton before this last season of getting benched and being the root of trade deadline discussion out of that team. I'd tend to think Smid, Hemsky or Smyth because of their veteran status but I also seem to lean in the direction of team captains being seasoned players. I don't think Yakupov would be a consideration this year.

You might be right. But Yakupov is sick!

I can't argue that Yak is sick but captain next season?

 

Come on Axe. Be serious for once please...

Yakupov has that moxy. Hall seems like he's kinda shy. I like em both.

NY Islanders - Tavares, no-brainer

Dallas - Benn, also a no-brainer

Ottawa - Karlsson would be my pick, but wouldn't be surprised if it is Spezza

Buffalo - Ville Leino  :ninja: (j/k probably Stafford or Ehrhoff)

Columbus - JMFJ or Dubinsky

Calgary - Giordano

Tampa - St. Louis, with Stamkos being the obvious successor when Marty retires

Edmonton - Eberle

It's Eberle or Hall.

 

I guess anything is possible.

Just by seeing the title, I thought this was a thread about Captain Intangibles... :lol:

I thought that may have been a joke as well lol.

 

NYI - JT

DAL - Benn

OTT -  Spezza

BUF - Stafford (maybe Vanek to try and keep him around?)

CBJ - Johnson (goin off the board)

CGY - Giordano

TBL - Tough call between St. Louis and Stamkos, do you give it to the guy who's been there through it all or your superstar? I'll go St. Louis I guess

EDM - I honestly could see them going a while without naming a captain like Colorado did for a bit.

Gaborik won't be captain in Columbus. They aren't even committing to a contract renewal until next season.
