"It's already an honor just to be in the conversation, but I know I have to step up and help lead this team no matter if there's a letter on this sweater or not. I feel like I'm ready for it. When Gorges and Gio were here, you don't want to step on any toes, you want the leaders to lead and want them to be able to do their thing. But now that they're gone, I think there's a big gap to fill right now. I hope to be able to do so. Whoever does have the 'C' on their sweater, he's going to have a lot of help. We know a lot of guys in the room that can lead, guys who have been on Stanley Cup teams. So I think whoever gets the letter, he'll get help."

-Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadians on his name being mentioned as one of the possibilites of being named captain. More from Pacioretty by Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.
