Islanders Will Name Their New Captain Later Today

As Arthur Staple of Newsday reported here last night, the Islanders will name their new captain today.  I agree with Staple that the new captain will be Mark Streit.  My take on the NYI captaincy situation from a few weeks ago can be found here.  There are many candidates to wear the ‘A’, but I think the alternate captains will probably be Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen.

No chance Tavares will get a letter?

I almost would prefer that he didn’t.  There is definitely a strong chance that he may, but he can lead without a letter.  I would prefer that he wasn’t given the pressure of wearing the ‘C’ or ‘A’ and can just go out there play his game and put up numbers.  He has plenty of time to become the Isles captain and I think he will be in the future, but, in my opinion, I think the team is better served to not give him the ‘C’ at this point in his career.
