    McD as Captain is the worst idea since Luongo as Captain.

    Isn’t there enough pressure on the kid already? He barely shaves and fans were putting the weight of an entire franchise on his back BEFORE he got the big C.

      This kid is so well equipped to be Captain.he just goes out and does his job. Great choice. Great ambassador already for the Oilers. This is his team and he will make everyone around him better.
