Update on Colorado Avalanche captaincy!

It figures my post that I wrote AND published last night would decide to publish today, the same day the following came out.  Per Adrian Dater of the Denver Times, the Colorado Avalanche are unlikely to start the season with a captain.  It will be Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk sporting the ‘A’ with a third player to be named to also wear the ‘A’.  I believe that is a message Sacco and co. are sending to the players, especially Pauly, Hejduk, EJ and Duchene for one (or more) to step up and take charge of this team.  I like what he is doing, but at the same time it worries me that the same lack of inspiration that we saw the last month or two last year has carried over.  Last year, Duchene and Ryan O’Reilly took charge big time and put the team on their back a lot towards the end, so look for them to do it again.  Thoughts?
