<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Green4D4Again</b></div><div>It'll be Tkachuk with 'C' after the draft with Chabot, Boro and Brown with the 'A'.
They really don't need Gally, Green, or Crow. Crawford will 100% re-sign in Chicago. Hogberg and Nilsson will be 1-2 next year with Dac for injuries.
They are also under the cap floor by 4.5 million...</div></div>
You can be a huge emotional leader without being the captain. Theres a reason that typically, players like Brady are not chosen to be captains.
The captain has responsibilities on the ice, they're a representative to the referees. Chabot already carries the respect of the league, players, administration, officiants.
Tkachuk should carry the A. He can give emboldening speeches. Fire up the boys. Its not an insult to him for him not to be captain. Ask literally anyone in the NHL, you can be a leader without the C on your chest. But we will need Chabot to talk to the referees and speak to the bench when Chucky is in the box after a scrum.
Also theres the optics of Chabot being the first to commit to our trash team long term, and the fact that he is a french-canadian playing in Ottawa.
'C'habot. Chabottawa. Hotsam Batcho.
