Maybe your right...  but it happens often.. do you think a 18 year old mcdavid should have been captian.?

McDavid seemed like the right choice for that team

Fair. Sorry for assuming. I still think your take is completely wrong. 

Anyone who has so much of an ego that they're offended about not being named captain should not be your captain anyway.

Also the notion that bo is soft is dumb

And no it's not dumb.. he is soft. However he is good at whining at the refs.

 

Hes just not a drag the entire team through the mud kinda guy.

Going back in time just off the top of my head

 

Sakic as C over Forsberg

Messier C over Gretzky

Bucyk  C over Orr

Messier was never the captain over Gretzky. He took over when Gretzky was traded.  Unless you are talking about the Rangers where Messier was already the captain and led them to a Cup before Gretzky even joined them.

So Baertschi and Gaudette would be our penalty killers?  You do understand we need to kill penalties right?  Isn’t that why you have a 4th line or do most teams just dress 12 offensive forwards?

by my original post I meant i'd rather have Baertschi and Gaudette in the lineup than Eriksson & Schaller. if that's such a problem then don't put them on the penalty kill. the PK doesn't just depend on Eriksson/Schaller.

McDavid was 19 and had played an NHL season. 

 

Come on, this is easy to verify.

Not really. Gretzky never became captain until he was 23. They should have picked a veteran but it’s the Oilers and their organization is the most dysfunctional in all of sports right now so it makes sense for them to pick a kid as their captain.

the message being sent is that if you can't contribute to a special teams unit, whether it's pp or pk, you're not doing enough to justify a roster spot for yourself.

it's a well known fact that hall was traded because you wouldn't stop posting baseless nonsense on the internet.

You need between 4-6 forwards to kill penalties. Most teams create a 4th line for that express purpose so they don’t have to use their star players on the PK. Having Gaudette and Baertschi on the 4th line makes no sense whatsoever.  How many teams in the NHL have skilled forwards on their 4th line who don’t kill penalties?

Only based on facts.

McDavid was names Oilers' Captain 3 months after Taylor hall was traded.

Your correct...this is why LE as much as I dislike him is a far better 4th liner than Bert...LE is actually good at PK
