    Yeah, whats the deal with that? I was hearing Toews name thrown around a lot before the camp, is Letang a good leader?

    Hockey Canada also announced that defenceman Kris Letang will be team captain, with Steve Downie, Marc Staal, Jonathan Toews and Tom Pyatt rotating as alternates. :)

    Anyone has a full list of WJC Canada's captains through the years? I know Chipchura was the one last year, but after that I don't really remember.

    A bit of a surprise. I thought Staal or Parent might get it, with Toews the best bet among the forwards. A great honour for Letang, but a huge responsibility, too. This will be some of the biggest pressure he'll face in his career.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the alternating A's but oh well. Did they do that last year, I can't really remember who wore the letters other than Chipchura, Comeau and Boyd maybe. As for Letang being named captain, that surprised me a little, I was thinking it'd go to Parent.

    Chipchura, Bergeron, Paille, Upshall and Stoll are the last 5 I remember.

    Mike Richards was the captain, not Bergeron.

    Picking Captains is the one area you can be confident of that you don't have to question the coaches decision on most times.They can see from the practices and games what guys are ready and capable of leading.

    If they chose Letang then he must be ready and able.Good luck to him,it's a big responsibility to captain our team at this tourney.Quebec players have done a great job at it before,i'm sure this latest representative will do so again.

    Considering Baumgartner would have been 24 in 2000, I think you may be mistaken about that ;)

    I'm pretty sure he was captain in 1996.

    Captain America would lead the tourney with 576 goals.

    We'd still find some way to lose the gold though.:biglaugh:

    I never heard of him before you mentioned him. I knew Rickard and Nicklas Wallin existed but Jesse? How did he make the Canadian Team back then? Was he a 'heart and soul' player (cause he didnt have a lot of points in the WHL)?
