My Thoughts and Prediction
Personally, I believe that any of the guys I’ve mentioned could take on the role of captain, but there are a million reasons why it may or may not make sense for all of them. While some of them need to prove that last year was a blip, other’s need to show that they are the type of leader that wears the “C”.
My feeling is that Brayden Schenn is going to step up in a big way in the preseason and prove that he is the guy for the role. However, my confidence level in my prediction is around 51%.
No one knows how this will turn out and Army continues to play his cards close to the vest. We may be about start the first captain-less season for the St. Louis Blues since ’07-’08.
