    • not sure
    • Someone else example:Bieksa/Hamhuis

Bleacher report always posts utter rubbish.

We all know Kesler is going to get the C when the Sedins retire anyways. And who really cares on who wears the C? Anyone in the locker room can step up and say what they want at any given moment. You don't need a C to lead.

So what you're really saying is that Kesler shouldn't be captain since bleacher report sucks?

Why yes. Changing the captaincy of a team every season is optimal to a team's success. :emot-parrot:

At this point, captaincy strengthen's Henrik's legacy and by the end of his and Daniel's career, they'll be cemented as the best players in Canucks history. Henrik should have the C.

Anyways, from what I understand, Kesler-Bieksa-Burrows are like 'three muskateers,' which just sounds cliquey as crap.

But really whoever has the C is just keeping it warm for Hodgson.

And how do they know Kesler would be a greater pick for captain? Have they played for the team and been with him through the games to experience his leadership qualities that are apparently better than Henrik? Or are they just basing it off the fact that he has a more gritty and 'tough' style? Because then they're just embarrassing themselves.

It's a title, nothing more. One does not become captain because of his playing style. Would Kesler stand up and take all the questions after a Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup? Would he be a great role model on the ice for the rest of the team?

No fan can claim a certain player would be a better pick than another because you don't know them, you don't know how they are around the ice. You just *think* you know better.

Henrik didn't take Vancouver to the Stanley Cup, the TEAM did. Kesler won't take Canucks to a Stanley Cup if he was captain, the TEAM will. A captain doesn't have the impact that you think he has.

It seems as though Henrik learned a lot from our playoff run last year, but has yet to really find a way to overcome very physical games. Even with that said, I think he has the ability to lead this team to the Cup.

On a side note, I think it would be hilarious if Bieksa was captain. Can you image the sound bites he would give out on a daily basis? :lol:

What a bunch of hogwash disguised as an "article"

This is why Bleacher report has the credibility of Eklund...
