    I’m probably in the minority, but I don’t believe that this team currently has anyone on the roster that should be wearing the C.

    Brown would be the closest just because of his history.

    Give Brown back the "C"?!?!? lol

    Have we already forgotten the past?

    Truth be told this team's leaders were traded away/left/never re-signed/told they violated the terms of their contracts....etc and so on.

    Brown and Kopi were never the leaders.

    Come on now. This team is a ship without a rudder.

    Maybe, we should be like the Sharks that one year and have no team captain.

    It was one game, guys. Against an equally s***ty team. And it was in comparison to the dreck we've been seeing for a couple of weeks.

    So, maybe slow that roll.

    I think Dustin Brown was fine as a captain, but with him being a quiet, lead by example type his on-ice struggles the previous few years probably hindered him. And what I mean by that is, I imagine it's tough to tell the other players to put on the big boy pants and step up their game if you yourself aren't putting up numbers and getting dropped to the 3rd and 4th line, you know?

    In terms of the right combination of talent to lead by example and passion it would be Drew Doughty for me, but he still lacks on-ice composure and maturity at age 28, which is disappointing.

    So I would agree with you that nobody on the current roster seems to have the qualities to ideally fit that role.

    He’s a hundred times the leader Drew is and plays with more heart than Kopi.
    It’s only been one game and if he’s better without the C why ruin it again? When Scuderi and Mitchell were on the team they didn’t need a letter to be a leader.

    Does the sport even need captains anymore? not really, I get its tradition but it is unnecessary. If people need to be told you are the captain by a letter on your chest, then maybe you don't deserve it. Leaders exist and emerge with and without letters on the chest all the time, the identification of a captain because of the letter is just kind of petty and irrational. Listen to me because I am the captain...people listen to you when your words and actions have value and they dont need a letter on your chest to figure that out, if they do they probably arent in the league.

Williams still showing it but not here.
    I personally think that Brown has played much better without that "C" Leave well enough alone. I don't feel that Kopi is the right "C" for this team. But, they seem to feel he is.

    I just typed that very same thing.

    Here's a thought. Remove all the As and Cs and the names on the backs of their jerseys.
