Stamkos: St. Louis Deserves Captaincy
Based on Stamkos recent comments, St. Louis, 38, is the favorite to get the job.
You have to think, from my point of view anyway, it will go to Marty, Stamkos told the Tampa Bay Times. Hes been a guy who has been here a long time. He deserves a chance to wear the C.
At the age of 23, Stamkos is expected to be a huge factor and the face of the Lightning for years to come, but St. Louis contributions to the franchise certainly cant be ignored. He ranks second on the teams all-time games played list and first in points. St. Louis is also still a force on the ice despite his age, as evidenced by his capture of the scoring title last season.
