    The last two names don't sound reasonable at all.

    Whether you think Smyth and Schultz have lost a step, or are getting to much ice time or are paid to much, they are still veterans that I'm sure have good leadership.

    I do agree Smid should have a letter

    They don't contribute much other then just being veterans, want a new Idenity for this team, don't re-hash these guys as "leaders"

    Smid is a better choice then Schultz and let another guy emerge to lead.

    They are giving other people a chance to be leaders hence the other 4 alternate captains, If your gonna have 6 alternates why not 2 be reliable vets?

    Because, especially in Smyth's case, they aren't that. Time to move on, they should be basically be considered as lucky to be on the team.

    I thought that Smid was a more effective player prior to having an "A." This will be good for him.

    Reliable vets in there leadership, and If they weren't good enough to be on the team they wouldn't be here. Look at jones he was sent down due to poor play and I have faith that if Smyth starts playing poorly enough that he doesn't deserve a spot Eakins will bench him.

    Smyth has played well enough for a spot and has proven he is a decent leader (been a letter on a lot of teams and is captain Canada) I see no problem with this

    If Smyth was the only A I would agree that with the new movement it should have gone to others, but with 6 A's I see no problem with some being younger up and comin leaders and some being your established veteran leaders

    The last three names seem too much. But, as long as the players are happy that is all that matter.

    I don't think that MacT is a fan of Smid tbh (remember, Tambo re-signed him) and i think once Nurse, Klefbom or maybe even Belov show that they are capable of playing in the top 4, Smid is trade bait IMO. MacT highly values puckmoving and Smid is below average in that area.

    I'd rather have Yakupov and Smid than NSchultz and Smyth, but whatever

    Agree...
    Hopefully Smid makes a good impression on Eakins and sticks around.
    MacT wont trade him if Eakins has his back.

    No kidding, the old thanks for coming out old man. He should just announce it's his last year and do a Rivera-esq retirement tour.
