Gabriel Landeskog Named Captain

Recommended Posts

He has shown that he is mature and captain material. Might be a bit young to give him the responsibility but then again he has the ability to carry a team on his shoulders.

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.

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.
