I know I've mentioned before that I'm not a huge fan of the rotating captaincy. I kind of understand why the Sabres did it last year - all three letter wearers were gone, Teppo Numminen very suddenly, and none of the kids had ever had that responsibility before - but I was really hoping Lindy Ruff and his staff would pick three guys to carry the letters all season this time around. I was disappointed to hear Lindy address all questions about this year's captaincy with some variation of, "Well, the players seemed to really like it."
I have to admit, I got a huge kick out of Mike Harrington's recent article about the captain situation. You can read the whole article at the link but here's the short version:
Lindy said, "We’ve discussed it as a staff but still haven’t come to a conclusion. I think the guys liked it."
Jaroslav Spacek said, "I have no clue what they’re going to do but I think we should have one captain."
Jason Pominville said, "If it was my decision, I would probably name one or two and go that way."
Ryan Miller said, "It’s up to Lindy but consistency is always good from my side of things."
Yeah, Lindy. The guys, they sound crazy about the idea.
