    If he signs an extension before the “season” starts, that would be funny.

    Good choice. Guy wears his heart on his sleeve when he plays. Will be a good change of pace from He Who Shall Not Be Named to see some emotion out of our leadership.

    Congrats to Lee! Well deserved.

    I guess that means extension is coming.

    While I think Lee is an outstanding choice as the Captain in a vacuum, I don't know if it's the best play to keep him long term. I would go 5 years on an extension, anything more would be a mistake.

    If he is dealt though, it would really hammer home Lou's intention of character being paramount during his era. Lee is beloved by almost all Isles fans, even if we disagree about re-signing him. That will be a change from the robot who formerly wore the C.

    Love it!!! He’s a great choice. I’m a bit surprised that they did it without an extension in place.
    I also agree with PW that 5 years would be ideal.

    Lee is a great leader though.

    He had north stars Pjs actually. Would that be The Dallas Stars or the Wild? Yikes.

    No way of knowing of course, but I suspect that they wouldn't have done this unless significant progress in that direction had been made. After the last POS, they almost surely would only have selected someone who actually wants to be on the team.

    I'm surprised they named anyone to be honest. I guess this means he'll for sure be resigned. I can't help but wonder what he could have fetched in a trade though.

    He's a really solid choice though. He gives it his all on the ice, and he does a lot of charity work off the ice. Seems like a great guy.

    Lee's not getting traded.

    And no way does he sign for 5 years. Teams will be lining up to give him 7.

    I thought they wouldn't name him a captain because he's a pending UFA. I guess they think the extension is likely happening. I'd rather wait and see how he'll look playing 80 games without T*vares.

    If they can shed a contract somehow I would even be willing to go up to 6 years for him.
