In Response to Re: Bruins Captains?
[QUOTE]How about the Bruins do this: P. Bergeron - Captain Z. Chara - Assistant Captain A. Ference - Assistant Captain Other i also think should get an A: T. Thomas M. Lucic D. Krejci S. Thornton I just think Bergeron brings more Leadership and has a better understanding about this team then Chara does. Been here a long time to know what it takes. For Chara he is a good Leader but just not good enough for this team to be the Captain. As for Ference. I love what he brings to the plate every night. He shows leadership, and what a Bruins should be. He protects his teamates. He dont back down.

paul u want to take away the "C"from zdeno chara.
the same player that has missed a combined 10 games in 5 years with the Boston Bruins.
the same player that at the end of the 08 season suffered a tore labrum in his shoulder.he then missed 5 games then played the last 9 regular season games and 7 playoff games and then had the surgery on his shoulder.
the same player that has been nominated for the Norris 3 times while with the bruins and won it once in 2009.
the same player that led the league in plus minus(+33) last year while playing mostly every shift against the other teams top line.
the same player who in 5 years with the bruins is a +68 while playing against other teams top lines.
the same player who last year was voted the toughest defenseman to play against. earning 34% of the votes cast by 318 current players.
the same player who last year captained the first playoff team to win 3 game 7s in one playoff year.
THE SAME PLAYER WHO LAST YEAR CAPTAINED THE BOSTON BRUINS TO THERE FIRST STANLEY CUP IN 39 YEARS!!!!
ya your right paul now is a good time for a change with the "C" that goes on the jersey of the captain of the Bruins! wow
