    Stevie Y isn't going to the World Cup.

    I think that Lemieux should be captain but if he isn't then I think it should go to Sakic.

    Sakic...there are alot of guys who are 'good leaders' (or so I hear from TSN and the papers) but are younger. "Respect your elders" comes into play

    With Yzerman out, I'd say Sakic...probably ends up being Mario though.

    Sakic would be the obvious choice if Mario couldn't play, but the entire team is full of good leaders so anyone could get it.

    Joe Sakic. After the way he played in the 2002 Olympics, he showed that he really is the leader of the team on the ice. However, I agree with most that it will probably be Mario.

    This is how I would guess the captaincy's will be set:

    Mario Lemieux (C)
    Joe Sakic (A)
    Rob Blake (A), or
    Adam Foote (A) --> if Blake is unable to play

    BTW -- not a Avs fan, these just make sense when looking at the roster and the player's respective ages.

    Two odd ball names I'll throw out is Ryan Smyth and Jarome Iginla (for A's) in the mix with Adam Foote and such

    Sakic seems to be the favorite and im going to have to agree with it :)
     
  21. Sakic deserves the C. He was our MVP at the last olympics, and I feel that he should be the captain this year. Lemieux and Blake(if healthy) should get the A's

    I'd definitely give captaincy to Joe Sakic.

    I would designate 3 "A".

    1)Jarome Iginla
    2)Scott Niedermayer
    3)Ryan Smyth

    I agree. Sakic is the guy -in his prime- that can get it done.
