I was watching them introduce the players. First came Jordie Benn (#4), then came Brock Boeser (#6) (oh, they're going by numbers, I thought). Then they introduced J.T. Miller (#9), and my first thoguht was "oh crap, Tanev is injured again". lol But of course, he came out later wearing the A.

The funny thing is that Tanev wasn't actually wearing an A (He'll wear it for away games) and for whatever reason I thought that meant that he was going to be announced captain and I was really scared up until they called for Bo.

I thought there was a small possibility it was going to Edler, given how weird everyone looked at him on the ice after he scored the season-opening goal in Edmonton.  Kind of in the nature of, "first guy to score this season gets the 'C'".  I would've been WTF'ing all season if that happened.

A pretty cool behind-the-scenes video when he was privately named captain during a Canucks team meeting before the NHL season began. The moment when his teammates found out that he would be the next Canucks captain, with Travis Green leading the way, and Henrik & Daniel coming in and doing the honours.

 

Was just going to post this . Lol. Love it .

Now the real question is who does he pass the cup to next year.  Gotta be Edler.

What I thought was interesting in the post game presser, Greener at about 9 1/2 minutes seemed to let slip they were ready to contend for a Cup in 2 years, when Horvat will be a fully established (my interpretation) Captain.

He kind of stuttered, and then back tracked. But I found that interesting. I think he is actually prone to some Freudian slips because he tries to keep stuff under his hat so much.

Then goes on to speak about winning it all etc. 

start about 9:05
