What if Kesler were to be captain?

132 posts in this topic

With no disrespect to Henrik Sedin as he is a wonderful and leading captain I just have my own proposal and fresh idea to how Kesler being captain could have turned this team to a Cup in 2011, and even a potential Cup for next season (2012/13)

First of all, deciding between the Twins and then choosing one of them with obviously having Daniel know that his brother is and was chosen over him because they thought Henrik would be a better candidate for captain than him is kind of a slap in the face. Obviously, I am absolutely sure that Daniel is fine, but you know what I mean.

Secondly, that run of Kesler leading this team and really trying to push the Canucks into becoming more motivated to play harder and better as a result of Kesler leading by example was a huge example to prove that Kesler has the potential. Plus, if Kesler was chosen captain, then the Sedins can be on the same page as both of them were to be still A's and I honestly think that it would motivate Kesler a lot more than Henrik if he were to be chosen captain it would push this team in a different and more motivated direction.

Label me insane, but it could have worked...you guys have any thoughts?

Maybe in the future. It would look stupid changing Captains every 2 years or so.

Yeah, while we're bludgeoning horse corpses, we may as well talk about trading Luongo, Rogers Arena atmosphere (intro song, ticket prices, etc.), the team's logo/jerseys, and last but not least - Shane Doan.

Once I read the title of this thread I was wondering how long it would take for this to be brought up. Wow first reply! One down year and he's already CDC's new whipping boy. Another 40 goal year and you guys won't care if falls down faster than a soccer player in the 18 yard box

The C is just a letter. There is very little chance that giving it to anyone else would make much of an impact. Hockey's a team sport with group leadership. People overanalyze the C too much, like it's some mystical ingredient to winning the Cup.

First off, I doubt it would be a slap in the face to Daniel. Henrik did win the Hart and Art Ross that year. And they wouldn't have picked him if they thought he wouldn't be able to get the team going. Maybe he's more vocal than Daniel, who knows?
