Wearing The ‘C’ In Toronto

from Damien Cox at the Toronto Star,

It should be more obvious than it is, shouldn’t it?

The leader of the Edmonton Oilers is Connor McDavid. Blake Wheeler is the man in Winnipeg. Alex Ovechkin has been in charge in Washington for years. Ditto for Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh and Jonathan Toews in Chicago.

Patrice Bergeron succeeded Zdeno Chara in Boston. In Vegas, it’s Mark Stone. Even in Seattle, with the expansion Kraken, Mark Giordano is clearly the leader.

In Toronto, meanwhile, the leader is … who?

Officially, it’s John Tavares, the man with the C above his heart.
