So now that Bieksa's gone to Anaheim, he leaves behind his "A". Pretty straightforward question. Which player do you guys want the "A" being handed over to?

I'm going with Bo Horvat/Alex Edler/Alex Burrows as possible candidates for the "A".

Poll away.

Tanev. He's calm, cool and great in the looker room. Longest contract on the team too.

I know a lot of people are going to say Horvat but there is a lot more deserving guys then him.

1. Edler ( Vetran, been apart of the team for a long time, experienced, and our number 1 dman )

2. Hamhuis ( Same reasons as edler, plus he is a very good leader )

3. Burrows ( No explanation needed )

Pretty much the general consensus. Obviously Burrows for me would also be a fantastic option. Basically those guys you and I have mentioned are my front runners.

How do you know that ? I would take him for the silent type.

Either Burrows or Hamhuis.

My personal philosophy is to always at least have 1 defender with an A, so I would go with Hamhuis

Horvat will be wearing a letter soon, but now isn't the time. Let him focus on becoming a pro first, and continuing along with his development

I agree. Horvat does not need that pressure yet. Let him develop his game first.

I really don't want Burr wearing a letter on this team.

Hamhuis.

Why not?

Dorsett would be the guy I think is first. Then Burr then Hammer.

Why not?

His reputation around the league, whether it be hair pulling, finger biting, or kneeing someone in the groin, isn't exactly flattering.

You can say reputation doesn't matter, but when a ref looks over and sees "Burrows" instead of another name, that is likely a penalty.

Horvat. The glut of young players that are going to start braking into the lineup are going to need a voice. Horvat should be that voice IMHO. The kid is a natural leader. He gives it his all every shift and is a pretty good bet to be the next captain of this team. I'd break him into a leadership role right now. He can learn from Hank, Danny, Burr, Hammer and the other leaders on this team, while being the guy to represent the next wave of Canucks going forward.

Hard to say. During Bieksa's injury Hamhuis & Burrows split it, but I could see them trying a younger player because it's a new era or whatever.
