Is there anyone out there who thinks Craig Rivet is a good captain for the Buffalo Sabres? Stupid question I know. Just making sure you are paying attention. A better question is this: Is there ANYONE out there who would object to Thomas Vanek wearing the C like... Immediately? I have never been an NHL player and have never met any of the buffalo Sabres face to face. Doesn't it just seem like he's the real captain of the team though? He seems to me to lead them in every way, the way you want a captain to. I think they should put the C his sweater before the NEXT GAME. Nobody is talking about it in the locker room, but don't you think this team would be excited for him to be named captain? I think they would rally around the guy, and have a little extra jump in their step for at least a game or two. That could make all the difference in the world between making the playoffs or not. Besides, he's earned it. Tell me what you think.
