- Me: I'm going to bed. Wake me up when hockey season begins.
Brandon Prust is the best choice to be captain for the montreal Canadiens. He has always been one of the few who stands up in the locker room, he is respected from all and defends his teammates. He’s a leader but still leaves place for the rookies and the younger players, (we all remember the famous “when you play with me you’re the best player, act like it” to Galchenyuk) so they can take still take their place as leaders as well. We all remember what he did with the Gally’s and the positive impact he has on the team. And thats why i’d give the A to two younger players, Prust could make the transition from veteran captains to younger captains. He might not be the best player out there but he’s a warrior and he plays with heart. The fact that he’s not a star player does not make him less of a leader.
