    I think Barker will probably stay with the Hawks.

    Bourdon is my pick.

    Will anyone who was on the team last year be there this year? I would assume they would be the captain...

    If Barker plays, then him, otherwise I say Kris Chucko.

    I can't see an 18 year old like Bourdon being named captain, maybe an alternate.

    BTW, has an 18 year old ever been captain of Team Canada?

    I think Bolland has a very good shot at captain if not alternate for sure.

    There is basically no chance at all Barker is sticking with the Hawks and not coming to the WJs. He's played 11 minutes in one game, and the consenus among Hawks fans (and simple common sense - it's silly to keep him around as a 7th dman, and even sillier to keep him around as a 7th dman and not release him for the WJs) is that he is going back soon. With that in mind, my picks are:
    C - Barker
    A - Chipchura
    A - Bolland
    I'd personally prefer Chipchura as the captain over Barker but it's tough not to give it to him as the only returnee.

    I'd go with Chipchura, Bolland, or Chuko. Chucko probably not because he plays in College and most of these guys will come from the CHL so he won't be as familiar with them then the other two. All 3 are strong leaders in my mind.

    I would think Marc Staal would be another possibility to likely wear an "A".

    I second that. Comeau gets zero respect around this place. The guy has played in 3 Memorial Cups, winning one of them. I think he brings the kind of attitude and winning history that the coaches will like and want him to spread around the room.

    What I have gathered from this thread is that fans of teams owning prospects that will be on the team believe that said prospect should\will be captain.

    Overwhelmingly, the verdict is Kyle Chipchura.

    Does that matter though? Wasn't Mike Van Ryn the captain of the Canadian WJC team while he was at Michigan?

    I'm not saying it's a big deal or anything, but it might swing in favour of a guy who is more familiar with the majority of the players.

    The captain will be Cam Barker if he returns. If not I think Chipchura.

    Not high on seeing Barker as Captain... an A, maybe.
    I think Chipchura would be most deserving of wearing the C. He's vocal, positive, has experience and plays a good game.
