    Claude Giroux is Named Flyers Captain

    "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."


    What do You guys think. Saw on twitter

    Not a bad choice, do you know what's going on with Pronger? Like how long is he supposed to be out for or could he be retiring?

    I find it interesting that teams are naming the younger guys all the time to be captains.

    Its pretty routine for guys with less than 3-4 years expierence becoming captain.

    I think its a relatively meaningless title but still an interesting trend.

    I do think perhaps its more fair to give it to more veteran guys.

    Age doesn't really matter for me. Whoever leads the team best gets it, whether that be a second year player or a 15 year vet.

    Oh and Pronger is probably done

    I guess so but I find it hard to imagine all these young players really are the best leaders on their teams. I think its alot of marquee attention just to give it to the best player on the team.

    Should Ovechkin really be a captain for example?

    Should Vincent Lecavalier had been captain at like 19?

    EDIT: To be clear I don't know really that much about Giroux's leadership capabilities and this isn't directed at him. I'm just making a general comment in a relevant thread.

    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.

    Happy to see him get the C, he is one of the best 5 players in hockey. Hopefully he can get to even more elite levels.

    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.
