By the way, Tampa Bay's captain is Brad Richards. I want to say Brind A'mour is Carolina's captain and Adam Hall is Nashville's captain, but I'm not sure about those last two.

The Rangers don't have a captain. They just have alternate captains this season.

Yeah, there should be a rule that every team has a captain. None of this seven-alternate captain-of-the-month crap. That's for kids. "Captain" means more in hockey than any other sport, don't cop out.

I thought that Briere was an alternate captain. I saw his game winning goal last night and as he was celebrating I saw the "A" on his jersey. I mean, it was Briere that got the game winning goal right? I just woke up and I can't remember too well.

Actually ever since the Lightning cut Andreychuk there has been no player with a C....they did add a third player with an A. The 3 Lightning alternate captains are:

Vinny Lecavalier

Freddy Modin

Tim Taylor

No there should not, it should be up to the team, not the league. If a team chooses to have 3 A's and no C's it not that big of a deal

So these teams without a captain, and this 3 alternate system, what happens if they win the cup, who gets to raise the cup? IMO, it is kind of weird to see a player wearing the "A" lifting up the cup.

I think the cup is awarded to the 3 alternates in that case. I'm not sure but I think I've seen old footage of the cup being awarded to 3 players.

The New Jersey Devils do not have a captain. Elias, Madden, and I think Rafalski are the 3 alternate captains. I don't think the Rangers have a captain either. In both those cases they had their Hall of Fame captain retire the week before training camp. I don't think the teams wanted to name a new captain immediatly as a tribute to what Messier and Stevens meant to those teams.

I would expect next year for the Devils Patrik Elias will be the captain.

If Keith Primeau is ever cleared for play in the playoffs, I'd guess he'd retake the Flyers' C from Hatcher. They played the first half of the season without a formal captain in the wake of Primeau's latest concussion.

Yeah, I guess you heard about the team picture fiasco from a couple weeks ago when they stripped the C from Hatcher (without even telling him) because "Primeau is the official captain of the team, Hatcher is only the acting captain."

I don't think they actually recognize his captainship anywhere, and if they somehow won the cup, I think in their record books it would read that Primeau was the captain, even if he doesn't play. Kind of a slap to Hatcher, but he suxx0rz b4llz so I don't care.
