This morning on Twitter, Jim Cerny of nyrangers.com was asked about the possibility of Rick Nash wearing a letter this season, and he responded by saying he expects the Rangers leadership to remain the same.
Nash was the captain for the Blue Jackets.
Ryan Callahan is the captain (Duh), while Brad Richards and Marc Staal are the alternates.
Dan Girardi wore an “A” while Staal was sidelines with post concussion symptoms during the first half of last season.
…no way Torts is changing leadership. That’s not the way he rolls. Just look at last year. He could have easily left Girardi as alternate captain once Staal came back, but there Staal was wearing the “A” in the Winter Classic.
…a player doesn’t have to wear a letter to be a leader on the team and I think Nash will definitely do his part on the ice and in the locker room.
