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. 

That's why I said he was right for EDM

 

McDavid is a generational player who's been in the spotligt his whole life. He's not some skinny kid from Europe who's still grasping the English language.  

 

And who's to say Elias is better than Bo? As far as I can tell, Bo carries this team on his back. Pettersson might have more skill, but Bo has more grit and battle. It's not always all about the points.

Thank you for proving my point

Wait I'm confused.

 

So at first you were saying that naming bo captain would cause issues because petey's our best player.

Then you use Taylor Hall/McDavid as an example of naming a captain causing locker room issues... when McDavid was clearly the best player on that team.

You literally proved your own point incorrect.

Yeah, that's a weird hill to die on :lol: Pretty much on par with being anti-Pettersson in terms of wtf-ness.

2 big egos.... hall was overshadowed....asked for a trade and was traded. It's quite simple.  

 

You honestly dont think that hall wasnt involved in a discussion along with mcdavid and the GM.

I actually dont believe Bo is the right fit for canucks captian.

Sorry Guys

 

 

BETTER OFF TO WAIT 2 MORE YEARS AND NAME PETTERSSON

 

2 reasons.

Main reason. Bo is soft.... sorry to say it he doesn't stand up for the guys.... hes alot of talk no action.  For example...When that boeser hit happened..... bo could have stood up and made a big check or a fight and showed the team he the leader will not stand for it. And showed them by example what is expected of the team in those situations. Instead..... crickets.

 

Reason 2... when your best player is not your captian it can cause serious locker room problems. Bo is a great player but hes not pettersson.

 

Sensing time is short, Rush17 got himself a sock-puppet?

I think that considering McDavid was named captain 3 months later it's quite possible it wasn't a factor, but I'll concede that it's possible it was.

Hall was also completely blindsided by the trade though and even said he wanted to stay after he was traded I believe. I don't think he at all requested a trade. He expressed that he wanted to stick around to see the thing through.

 

Nonetheless, your argument seems to be changing with every response and it seems you're grasping at straws to support your idea that Bo's not the best captain for the team.

Horvats Captain material. Works as hard as anybody. Stable, married man. Charity work. Doesn’t complain about his line mates. Go to guy when you need to defend a late lead or score the tying goal. Great choice.

"We" means our GM and owner right?  It's the GM's job (or one of his jobs) to see a player's decline before it happens.  Then trade that player.  It's the NMC and NTC that make the matter really hard though.  

Yes, but not impossible, as history has shown

Like I said my issue with Bo... is that I dont think he has enough snarl and umph or compete level for captiancy.... he not a drag the team through the trenches kinda guy.

Are you talking about the same Bo? Because we’re talking about Bo

Horvat, who plays for the Vancouver Canucks.

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.  

Was referring to the Rangers correct
