Jagr Should Be Captain

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Now, as they seek to claim a division championship that would give them the home-ice advantage they seem to believe so important, they more often than not appear fatigued; good enough and resourceful enough to win games, but without the crispness, confidence or swagger with which they played preceding the Olympics. If the team received a jolt of incentive from the outside at the start of the regular season, now is the time for Tom Renney to provide a jolt from the inside - or it will when it's time to start the playoffs. When it's time to start the playoffs, it will be time for Renney to name Jaromir Jagr team captain, to give him the letter he has earned.
