Would Dubi Make A Better Captain Than Cally?

dubifightThat’s the question Bruce Berlett at the Howlings tackles in his latest post…

“While both are similar in terms of what they bring to the team in terms of their talent, what differentiates Dubinsky from Callahan, is that the Anchorage, Alaska native is a FAR more emotional player on the ice. He’s more animated. More intense and certainly knows how to celebrate after a goal…especially a key goal. That’s the kind of fire that lights up, not only The Garden Faithful, but his teammates as well.”

…Berlett brings up a real interesting point here. Rangers fans have just endured three years of an unemotional captain in Drury, whose stoic approach was viewed by many as a detriment to the team. So why would Rangers fans embrace the similar leadership qualities of Callahan?

…the Rangers absolutely need to show more passion on the ice and naming Dubinsky as captain may be the answer.

…having said that, he is known to take some ill-advised penalties and you have to wonder if his emotions would ever get the best of him. I think fans have some reservations about Dubinsky based on his contract dispute two years ago that may be exasperated even further with more contract complications this summer.

…i’ve been saying all along that Callahan should be the next captain of the Blueshirts and I’m sticking with it. Although Dubi has to be wearing an “A” this season.

…what do you think?
