Ducks to name captain soon!
Based on some inside information, I know that the Mighty Ducks are expected to announce who their captain will be in the next few days. It's apparently down to two guys...Scott Niedermayer and Keith Carney. Being that Scott Niedermayer has won just about every championship a player can win, as well as individual honors, and has a four-year contract, I would expect him to be wearing the C on his chest come opening night.
Personally, I prefer a more intense captain, one that will let players know when they are not doing enough. But, there is something to be said for a guy that leads by example and who speaks only when it's needed. Steve Yzerman is that type of guy, and he has led the Red Wings to many championships and a ton of success.
I think either Carney or S. Niedermayer would be a fine captain, and I'm glad that it will be announced soon so that whoever it is can start establishing their role as team leader in training camp.
