    I'm shocked that people didn't see this coming. Roddy has already been a healthy scratch this year, so you should've known he had fallen out of favor somewhat. Give Staal the same surrounding talent as Crosby and Ovechkin and then compare the play among the 3 of them. Staal is an outstanding player and hopefully will wear the C for many, many years to come. I do feel bad for Rod, but he's a veteran and I would expect him to respond with nothing less than the considerable class he has always exhibited. Who knows, it may even serve as motivation and fuel his inner fire.

    I agree, but kmeyers has a right to an opinion. I personally think it was a good thing to do and the right time to do it. We don't know what happens behind the scenes and while hockey is entertainment for us it is a business for all NHL team owners and their respective general managers. I think that kmeyers will be more upset with what is about to transpire than Roddy losing the C and remaining with the organization until he retires. There are going to be A LOT of upset Caniacs.

    You don't know any of what happens behind the scene. Eric Staal is the face and leader of this franchise.

    He has proved it through his commitment to be out on the ice night in and night out through all his injuries. He is also averaging a point a night almost...what more do you expect.

    If you don't like it take your money else where.

    I was highly disappointed to see that Rod Brind'amour was replaced as Captain by Eric Staal in the middle of the season. What a slap in the face for a guy who gives 120%, 100% of the time. Why could they not wait until the end of the season to see IF Rod retires and then do it? Besides, it's not as if Eric Staal is at the Sidney Crosby/Ovechin level to begin with. As a long term fan and ticket holder, I am very disappointed to see such an unprofessional decision having been made.
