"Get more Leafs at http://tmlfanfury.blogspot.com"
ON • Canada • 2013 Years Old • Male
As each day passes Leaf fans wonder what the hell is Mats Sundin thinking and when will he ever make up his mind on whether he wants to play or not and if yes where?

The question is will Sundin come back to the buds or has his time here passed?

I for one think Sundin might be leaning Toronto's way based on everything he has said in the past but lets not talk about that, lets discuss who should get the C if Sundin does not return.

The top candiates i feel that can wear the C for Toronto proudly next season is Tomas Kaberle, Jamal Mayers or Pavel Kubina. All 3 would be excellent choices as i dont see any of the Leafs younger players to be prepared to take the reins of being a Leaf captain and all the comes with this position.

Kaberle- A quiet leader, who will lead by example.

Mayers- A veteran canadian who gives his all every shift.

Kubina- A hard worker who strives under pressure.

The answer that i would give is to rotate the C between the 3 all season long and who ever doesnt have the C will be wearing an A. This is a new era in Maple Leafs hockey and hopefully one that we can enjoy, something we dont seem to remember to much about since before the lockout.

Which of the 3 would you like to see wear the C or would you pick someone else?

D- Stajan. Hes been with the team a few years now and has been the NHLPA rep for 3 years as well. Its time. There's no rule you have to be a superstar at a young age to get the C

Kaberle - Star defenceman, work horse, i like him but maybe he's too quite Mayers - won't get enough minutes to be C, he'll probly be 3rd or 4th line. Kubina - probly wont be around by the start of the season. Who ever it is, i hope it stays on them. The rotating C idea is a terrible answer to a team that desperately needs firm and steady leadership in this stage of a very shakey rebuild.

Matt Stajan easily should be the next captain

Well first off I think that Mats is done in Toronto. Secondly I think that the new captain will be Kaberle. Although you can't forget about McCabe. If he doesn't get traded he still is a worthy candidate to wear the C.

Kaberle or nobody. Simple. And I'm sick of hearing or reading Stajan as captain. It's a stupid idea. He is a kid. It's really easy to tell. Either the captaincy stays vacant or Kaberle gets it because he's the best player, has been here the longest, he was drafted and developed by the Leafs and is just clearly the next guy in line to get it.

Best candidate who will have an effect on all of the Leafs' players...the Water Bottle...

I think giving Stajan the Captaincy at his age on a rebuilding team that fans are sure to complain non-stop about is a horrible idea. He is a leader on the team and should get an 'A', if Sundiun doesn't come back but the 'C' is too much pressure. If McCabe is still on the team I'd make him Captain. As much as I dislike him he'll be the vocal leader on this team. Kaberle is a good guy and all but not vocal enough and when we finally get a good candidate for the Captaincy I don't want to embarrass him by taking it away from him.

Captian to no one until next season. In a way, that would give respect to Sundin and at the same time give everyone on the team a chance to prove their leadership. Especially considering this is highly expected to be an aweful year in the standings.
