Would Phaneuf Make A Good Captain?

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

If there is a likely captain out of the group that wear A, it could well be Phaneuf. At 24, he’s closer in age to the players he leads. Kaberle is 32, Beauchemin 29 and Komisarek 28.

The core of players around whom this team is being built is much younger. Phil Kessel is 22. Luke Schenn is 20. Tyler Bozak will be 24 later this month. Viktor Stalberg is 24. Carl Gunnarsson and Nikolai Kulemin are 23. Luca Caputi is 21.

“We’ve got a young energetic group that works hard shift-in, shift-out,” said Phaneuf. “It’s a fun group to be around. A very upbeat group; a young group.”
