With Sami leaving we now need to chose a new assistant captain...who do you think deserves it most?

For me personally, I would chose Burr or Hammer.

To further clarify, when a current assistant is injured Salo was the one who wore the A. he wasn't when all were healthy.

2nd edit: Apologies to any diehard Salo fans, got confused. (please don't torch me)

He is not an ALTERNATE captain..

Home: Henrik, Daniel, Kesler
Away Henrik, Malhotra, Bieksa.

Sami isn't an A but...


Burrows easily.

Heart of a Canuck.


Hammer deserves an A as well but a letter doesn't decide who can and cannot talk in the (locker) room.

I thought Manny just got it because Salo was injured, and everytime he played he seemed to be wearing an A

My vote is either Burrows or Hamhuis.

Salo DID wear an A when an assistant was injured. I could be getting it confused with 2010-2011 but he did wear an A.

hahahaha yes.

Sami "the 37 year old porcelain doll" Salo

But seriously all due respect for Sami... he is a player who provides top notch responsibility in his own end. He leaves behind some large shoes to fill.

Burrows and Salo both wore A's at some point last season due to injuries. Therefore since they were essentially "back-up A's" there is not a huge need to replace them :/

I hope they get rid of the Home and Away assistant captains, I believe they should just have Henrik as Captain, Daniel as A, and Kesler as A.....I would like to see Burrows having one, but having all 3 captains on the same line doesn't seem like the best idea.

Burrows aint getting it.
Hamhuis will be first in line because he doesn't act like a rat on the ice.

Maybe you got confused and the A you saw on his jersey was the A in his name =)

Burrows got the 'A' for a game when Salo and Malhotra were out. He'll most likely get it again when 2 or more alternate captains are out of the lineup.

I'd rather see our letters scattered across the lineup as opposed to all on our top line.

Alternate captains should alternate between Daniel, Kesler, Malhotra, Bieksa and Hamhuis.
