Rangers announce six alternate captains, no one gets the ‘C’ for now

The NY Rangers have announced they will have six alternate captains this year. Those alternates are Artemiy Panarin, Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad, Jacob Trouba, Ryan Strome, and Barclay Goodrow.

On last week’s podcast, we guessed who might get the ‘C’. Rob guessed Trouba. Becky guessed Kreider. I galaxy brained it and switched from Kreider to Trouba. Looks like we were all wrong, as no one is getting the ‘C” just yet. We will have to wait.

This announcement is funny, given all the focus on naming a captain before the season started. Guessing the locker room dynamics played a role in that, or at least that is my guess.
