Captain Change for Stars

Brendon Marrow will be wearing the C this year instead of Madano.

That's crazy. I just recently watched an interview that raved about him being the captain for so long. Maybe they need someone a little more rowdy and outspoken.

I am glad they finally did it. "At least that is what I infer from the previous posts". I hope Morrow infuses his enthusiam and grit into the rest of the team.

No offense to Mo, he's one of my favorites, but i didn't see him fit to wear the C. Brendan will do great! That guy has a bright future in the NHL.



Now, if we could just get Ovechkin here.

I think that's a great change. I've always been a big fan of Morrow. But the Stars could name everyone Captain and it won't do any good if Turco chokes in the playoffs again

I think Morrow is a bit over-rated, but I do agree it was time for Modano to give up the C.

Morrow is a more natural fit to be captain. From all accounts he is more of a quiet guy in the room but his work ethic and giving it all speaks louder than anything.

Very true. However, during preseason he seems to be changing styles a little. As I always mention, I'm not expert...however, I was happy to see him trying to avoid just laying there while the opposing team got rebound after rebound.

Too bad Zubov is so laid back, he's a cool player too.

Modano should have been the captain wayyyyy before he ended up getting it. I don't like this move, but whatever.

Modano isn't really what you look for in a Captain at all, but like you say whatever.

Modano is a good player, but like alot of people said he doesn't seem like Captain material. In my opinion, a captain should be outspoken and someone who will take up for his teammates, both with the opposing team and with the refs.

That and a captain is a player who you can count on to play balls out opening day till the last day of the season. Modano takes nights off. Putting the C on Morrow makes sense, as he will be able to grow more accustomed to the role with veterans around to share the duty some, so to say. Like it or not, Morrow will be the face of the franchise when Modano hangs them up, and it is easier to start that transition before hand rather than waiting until it happens.
