    Default Montreal's new captain (rumour)

    Gallagher; Montreal's next captain??

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/fr/news.htm?i...d=nhl:topheads

    The article is in French and basically reads that Habs legend, Guy Lafleur, thinks Gallagher should be the next captain of this storied franchise. He claims that Gallagher's heart and grit as well as his work ethic on and off the ice would be some of the key reasons why he should get the C.

    Personnaly, I would love for Gallagher to be 3-4 years older as he is the type of man the team would follow into war on any given night. Right now though, I feel like he is just a kid with a big heart and rubber bones! Not too sure he could/should become captain just yet...

    I hate how much Gallagher gets away with regarding the goalies. Players pretty much rape him, but it’s a vicious cycle that’s going to end with an injured star goalie. Honestly he’s just the Tucker of the Leafs that does more to goalies.

    He isn’t a captain as an opposing fan, he’s an alternate really. 1. Too young and not a big enough role to oversee that. Karlsson is young, but he’s pretty much the team. 2. Not on the ice enough personally for me to have a C. 3. How long will his body take the punishment? It’s hard to take a C away from someone and if he turns into an often injured player, then they aren’t skating with a captain anymore.

    I honestly don’t see a captain on that team. And it’s only a rumour because a former player said it?

    MacPac will be the next captain.

    As for Gallagher, I hate to say this, but he reminds me in some way of Maxim Lapierre early in Montreal (but with a better scoring touch). The fans loved Lapierre, because he always hustled, went to the net, could agitate the other team, etc. I remember after Koivu left, there were quite a few people who wanted Lapierre as captain.

    I'm not saying Gallagher is the same type of player, but there are some parallels there.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Gallagher is not a captain. He's more a of role player pest type of guy. They really don't have anyone who is captain worthy, I'd say.

    I don't think it's an official rumor more than Guy LaFleur endorsing him. I love Gallagher - tons of heart. I just don't think the Canadiens have a "perfect Captain" candidate, which is part of their overall problem. Subban, Pacioretty, Gallagher and Markov are all flawed Captains IMO. The best candidate for me would be Carey Price, and that's flawed as well lol!

    Gallagher = Marchand. If you don’t think Marchand deserves a letter, no way does Gallagher deserve the captaincy.

    They had one 4-5 years ago that would most likely still be here but he preferred to go to Philly

    THANK THE LORD he never wore the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge jersey!

    It's only the opinion of Guy Lafleur. The Montreal media keeps asking his opinion because.. he is Guy Lafleur and it's the Montreal media....

    Elise Couture (Jean Beliveau wife) said somewhere in March that it should be MaxPac and it was the front page of the Montreal Journal.
