I say go for it, who can blame teams that don't have the same leadership qualities as teams like the Wings?

 

Who knows, maybe some day a team like Vancouver will name Luongo as their captain...

 

Oh wait.

Almost as lame as Buffalo having 2 captains.  Vanek gets the kids Monday to Thursday and Ott gets to party Friday to Sunday!

 

It should always be 1 Captain, 2-3 Alternates, none of which shall be worn by a goalie.

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

Ridiculous... There should be some kind of limit set by the NHL. I mean come on, a captain and 6 alternates? That's MORE than one full lines worth of hockey players. The Oilers are making some head scratching decisions. First they appoint Ference captain (before he had even played one game for them) over Smyth and other deserving players. And now this? Oilers are really starting to get annoying.

It's almost embarrassing if you're not named an alternate...

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I agree with the numbers but I have no problem with a goalie being the captain if he is the biggest leader on the team. Goalies can skate as well and if there is a discussion at center ice or whatever and it requires the captain, I don't see why a goalie can't meander over there. Besides, an alternate can normally do that and it's fine like when the captain is injured or whatever.

Ference as captain was a great choice, but 6 A's it's almost embarrassing if you are not getting one

I was tempted to post almost the same exact thing, word for word, earlier today.
