Taylor captain, Not Vinny? Or Richards?

“Twelve-year NHL veteran Tim Taylor has been named the eighth captain in Tampa Bay Lightning history, it was announced by Lightning Executive Vice President & General Manager Jay Feaster. Additionally, the Lightning’s assistant captains will be Vincent Lecavalier and Brad Richards, Feaster announced. Lecavalier had served as an assistant captain the past three seasons, and Taylor wore the “A” the second half of last season following the departure of previous captain Dave Andreychuk.”


I dont know if this is really the right person to be a captain. I mean why not Vinny? He leads by example, and its really not a secrect its “His” team. I’d also suggest Richards YOU JUST PAYED HIM THAT BIG CONTRACT, You’ve gott’em for a few years now. Might as well make him a leader.
