The Love Boat promises something for everyone
Set a course for adventure,
Your mind on a new romance.
I'll do what I can to lead by example. I'm not the most vocal guy. Footie's more vocal. I try to lead by example and mature as both a player and a person every day, and I feel I have the last few years
Maybe I'm way off base here, but after years of Sakic's silent leadership, wouldn't it be nice to have someone a little more vocal in the locker room guiding the team. Someone like, you know, Ian Laperriere? *Sigh* I'm not knocking Stastny (or Sakic), but I really think this team needs someone leading them who will kick them in the ass from time to time. That's not Stastny and it's not Hejduk. It is Foote, for sure, but then there's all those potential caveats listed above.
It's also possible that no one will be named captain. The Maple Leafs did not name a captain last year after Mats Sundin...well, after Mats Sundin did whatever it was that he did last year. With no clear-cut candidate and out of deference to Sakic's years of leadership it may just be that no one wears the "C" for another season. Fittingly, 19% who voted in the poll (including myself) feel that "None Of The Above" will be chosen. Clearly, the hockey gods are working behind the scenes on this one.
