With so few vets I would say Gonchar would be the early leader for the C, especially if Malkin comes over and lives at his house.

He was second on the team in pts last year! Behind only Crosby and ahead of Leclair and Malone. Not to shabby for a defenseman. Leclair is the only other guy on the team that really has a shot at being the capitan

Ya he isnt the greatest defensive defensman. He has always been more of a scorer

Gonchar is a vet which is a good thing for a captain and he's foreign which would help break a language barrier, especially with Malkin (which I'm not sure how the hell thats gonna end. Pens know where he is but wont tell...)

Gonchar was terrible at the beginning of the season, but in the second half he was great.

Me and my brother have this running gag that when anything bad happens we always say "Its Gonchar's fault."

Well, I'm hoping and praying that the reason they aren't giving anyone the C is because their keeping it open in case Mario comes back 1 more time. I don't even care if it's just 1 game, just as long as I get to see it. I have never seen Lemieux play in person. :(

i hope crosby gets the "C". he proved last season he's someone that can lead the team.

I would be pretty angry if Crosby is named the capitan, assistant ok but not captain. He hasnt put in his dues, it would be like naming a sophmore captain in CFB. It should be a honor reserved for one of the hard working vets like Gonchar (who is already Malkins mentor) or the wreckin ball.

steve yzerman was captain of the red wings when he was 21. gonchar is washed up.

2nd on the team in points is really washed up, Crosby already has the reputation around the league of becoming a whiner. Not something you want from your capitan

No offense to Mario but it's kind of gay that they have to honor him by not giving out the C for awhile.

2nd in points on a terrible team isn't anything to write home about. he played like garbage for most of last season. why not have crosby take the "C" now? its bound to happen.

How about 8th in points among defensemen? You arent just given the C, like on every other sports team you have to earn that from your peers by showing you are leader something Crosby needs to work on. Remember being the best on the team doesnt mean your the capitan.

Holy Shnikes, on ESPN Sportsnation the general public (usual Pens haters) are picking us to win it all, 18.4%! They Malkin winning the ROY (40.3%)

I don't think there's any question Malkin wins the Calder this year. There's no Ovechkin to compete with. Also, good news is, he doesn't need surgery, and could miss anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
