Schenn Next Leaf Captain?

The leafs are rebuilding their team. Luke Schenn has already shown he belongs in the NHL. It has already been publicly said on various sports stations that in the future schenn will likely be the next captain. That is likely to happen in a couple years. Howerver with Kaberle, Kubina, Antropov, Ponikarovsky likely to be moved by the trade deadline that would leave Schenn a spot at possibly an Alternate Captain role. Should the leafs trade those four player that would leave only Moore and Mayers of the 5 current captains. Schenn has been a solid defenceman for the leafs this year. If kaberle and kubina are traded that would leave him as the leafs top D-man, as Ron Wilson himself said schenn was top 3 as far as the leafs defence this year. With Schenn continuing to play the way he is and the leafs trading their current veterans, Schenn just could be an alternate captain next year.

    ya i agree. this is very possible however i belive that it might be a couple more years untill  full captaincy because ron wilson has sated that he likes kubina and does not want him traded.

    Ya it will be a couple years before he is the captain.  What i also forgot to put was moore might be traded to.  He is in the last year of his contract and if burke can't sign him to an extension he will probably be moved.

    as a habs fan i will say let him develop first before adding more pressure to the kid! but yes i think he will be a future captain for you guys much like komisarek will be for us! as i think schenn will be the same type of defenceman that mike komisarek is for us! a leader and top 2 defenceman with a mean streak and a shot blocker,punishing hitter that will chip in on the offence from time to time! these guys are what all teams that are successful covet the big mean stay at home  hard hitting defenceman,so he will make a good captain for the leafs down the road!
