This was done only for one reason, taking one title away from Crosby.

he is a great choice actually... he was one of their best players and showed the most heart out of anyone on their team i so wish nucks could have gotten him

I can say i don't watch many Avs games and i don't know much about the kid, but is he really captain material at age 19?

Captain material, but he's 19 and isn't that incredible a player. Not sure I like this move at this point in time, but Landeskog is still a stud so it could work out. I just think it's too much pressure, they should let him develop more before throwing this at him...there's plenty of guys more experienced than him on that team who could wear the C with respect.

Landeskog was going to become team captain eventually. Surprised to see it happen this soon, though.

Love the guy. Seems to be very Canadian in his attitudes and his personality.

Surprising, but I have no doubt he will be a good captain.

Seems a little early, but Yzerman was named captain of the Red Wings at 21 and Linden became captain of the Canucks at 21.

It can work, if you are sure you have the right guy.

Interesting move. A ploy to get a salary discount down the road? He is pretty good defensively already.

Watch OEL be named captain when Doan leaves.
