Crosby to be named Captain

I will have more information about this when it actually happens but for now it looks like he will be named Captain today. You can read the article here.

UPDATE I was reading at Mirtle's blog...and he was saying that the reason they are doing it now is so that Crosby can break another record by becoming the youngest Captain ever in the NHL. I think it's a little ridiuclous to be perfectly honest. I believe Crosby is a great player...he has a TON of skills BUT when it comes to his leadership...I have doubts. Maybe, if I wouldn't have seen him cry, and whine to the refs after every bad call...I would change my mind. The fact of the matter is this is a mans game and Crosby is still...a boy...disagree with me if you want...but it's the truth.

Crosby is just a boy. but there's something about him that suggests that he's really an old man in a kid-suit. I thought I'd be outraged by this, but I'm not.

I agree with you totally, Bethany. I don't think he should be getting captainship THIS early in his career. Maybe in a few years, when he matures a little bit, but I think this is way way too early.

Agreed. You only have to read my blog and I say pretty much the same thing you say: he's just too young and green to be given captain already. I'm not terribly upset about it because I expected it after he was given the A so soon but still... expecting something and having it happen is so different.

I'm not mad about it...I just think it's a dumb decision and I bet that his C will be gone by the end of the season. I don't get how these older players can have that much respect for him. Vinnie got his C taken away.
