"Obviously, this is a huge honor," Giroux said. "There have been a lot of great captains here in the past. Along with this comes a lot of responsibility which I am prepared for. Being named captain is not really going to change the way I play on the ice and act off the ice. But I am very excited about this opportunity."
No brainer here as he was their leader last year on and off the ice, he's the future of the team and a top 4 player in the league, Philly has something special in Giroux if he can keep from getting hitting in the head.
Landeskog is the youngest captain ever. I think its overshadowed by him playing on a bad team but still...
You like the rockies you must watch the Av's alot too. I live in Colorado as of now and watch both teams. Do you think Landeskog diserved that captain spot? I think Statsny got the boot man. He's always been one of those better underrated centers in the NHL and the Av's have been trying to trade him, all the rumors over the years. I truely think he was more of a leader on that Av team but we don't know what goes on in there lockerroom.
