Three A's is a definite possibility, but I hope they ditch the home/away thing.  Choose a leadership team and stick with it, imo

 

With all due respect, @stawns, a leadership group is not chosen...it emerges naturally.  With that being said, there are players who are natural de-facto leaders without having to wear an "A" or "C" on their jersey. 

 

In my eyes, the leadership group = core group of players.  The core of this club, as I see it, is made up of: Demko, Hughes, Pettersson, Boeser, Horvat and Miller.  I expect OEL to evolve into the core group.  With that being said, my choice is no different than those already being suggested...any three of Hughes, Pettersson, Boeser and Miller would make great Assistant Captains.

Well someone chooses it, obviously based on the natural emergence of leaders.  I'd say it's a collaboration between Bo and the coaching staff

I wouldn't count Sutter out yet. We need a fouth line center

Please don' t say that.  I've already popped the cork on the Champagne to celebrate Christmas in July with all the deadwood (Rousell, Beagle, Lucky Loui, Special Ed, Butter-Sutter and now Jake the Ripper) gone in one fell swoop.  

Who says there's no God ?

 

I now believe !

Khaira, 26, 6'4, gritty, Surry Boy,   2 yrs  -1yr 1.2 -- 2yr 1.4  ... TOI 12 mins   C/LW

And 2 big concussions close together at the end of the season. He's pretty inconsistent as well. He stands out in about 35% of his games. Definitely a good team player though when it comes to standing up for the boys.

how do you feel about OEL being here? 

If he is the C that he used to be it’s really good but if he’s on decline and become the new Loui, not so good.

So it’s hard to say yet.

Sounds to me like most think it's Bo, Myers and Miller as the main leadership group.  I'm curious what people think Miller brings to.the leadership group?  I get he plays with fire and passion, but I feel that's not necessarily the best quality for a letter.

OEL will be wearing a letter. The guy has Olympic, World Championship, World Junior and was a Captain/Assistant of his team for years. He has been touted as our #1 by our GM and will play a huge role. 
He probably already has the respect of the Officials around the league as well, so does Bo. Miller has a bit of a radical temper, Petey just stares and rolls his eyes. I’m sure Myers will get the opportunity or Sutter might be back in a 4th line role as reported. 
Down the road Petey, Brock and Quinn will probably get the nod along with Bo to be the leaders of the team.

Our entire team should be our leadership group. Players don't need a letter to lead.

So no one wears a letter?  Or does everyone wear one?  With 23 roster players they could almost cover the alphabet
