Henrik is a great player its just he doesn't have the 'it' factor to be a Captain. By giving the Captaincy to Shane Doan it might benefit the team because it would put less pressure on Henrik. This means he could focus on scoring. Everyone knows Henrik isn't the most vocal leader. Shane Doan is Canadian and I kind of compare him to Trevor Linden. A player who was born to lead a team.

If we get Doan I want him to become our new Captain. And its not like the organization hasn't changed captains before i.e Luongo

Absolutely, love Henrik but he's not the best leader, we need a good ol' canadian boy wearing the C again

Hank's our captain. Vancouver has a great history of long-standing canucks serving as captain. From Kurtenbach through Linden to Sedin. While Doan's a great leader he isn't the lifetime canuck that the twins are

Dat be a facepalm.

I'll have to consult the Canucks Official Team Rulebook to confirm but I think if Doan comes the Canucks would have to appoint the newly signed Mayson Raymond as team captain.

Once again, I do need to recheck on that particular rule.

That's a big "if" but if we do get him, I would say yes. Sedin's play-off record is unacceptable for a captain and noone else on the team currently screams CAPTAIN plus I believe you need that Canadian spirit at the helm.

Does anyone have stats on Doan's play-off performances? Does he step it up?

There are so many reasons why Doan should get the C (leadership, toughness, ability, work ethic). He is a guy that can obviously play, stick up for teammates, throw a big hit to get the team going, or score a big goal. The only reason why they should not give it to him is that it can stir things up in the locker room (much like Messier-Linden) and it is not worth the damage. Also, Doan is a guy that doesn't need a letter to be a leader for the squad. I just hope they get him!

I don't think so at all. Give him one of the 4 "A"s. That's IF he comes here.

Sedins are running out of time too, just like Luongo did. Regular season stats can go make-love to themselves.

Doan replacing Henrik as captain is as likely as Raymond being re-signed here....oh wait.

NO, we already have a captain. Unless he decides to give it up of his own volition without any pressure from outside sources, Henrik should, and will, remain captain of this team.

This happened once before, remember? Big shot player comes to the Canucks, the C is basically ripped from the current captain.......yeah, that worked out real well.

It's not dumb just because you disagree with it and it hurts your delicate sensibilities. It's actually a good question and will need to be answered if we land Doan.

I think people suggesting the 'A' for Doan if he came here are forgetting Manny has an 'A'

Yeah let's strip him of the 'A'... great idea.

Who are you as a CDC'er to question whether or not Hank has the "it" factor. He has been captain for every other organization he has played for. So I guess NO!

All you had to do was see the way Doan stared Brown down after Doan outmuscled him to know who should be captain of the Canucks. Doan wants the CUP and will do what it takes to get it. Take the pressure off the Twins. Hank should offer the 'C' to Doan.

The biggest benefit signing this guy will be his prepping of Kesler to take over the 'C' when he hangs them up.

And nobody else on the team wants the cup? Henrik has been with this organization since he was drafted and he's shown leadership in other ways besides being vocal. Doan is a vet and probably a better leader than Henrik but coming here and taking the captaincy is something that just doesn't happen unless Henrik offers it.

The problem with this infantile fan base is that they are ruled by their emotions and not rational thought. Whatever happens on the team will be treated professionally and in the best interest of the team, without care to what silly-minded fans are crying about.
