Captaincy change under Therrien?

Jacques Martin's first season with the habs was completed without a team captain. The coaching staff was undecided at that time, and felt like the team was able to compete night in and out without a player actually wearing the C on his jersey. Afterwards, Brian Gionta was selected mid september 2010 to be the 28th captain of the franchise. Jacques Martin backed his choice by stating Gionta's qualities on and off the ice: his work ethic, strong character and leadership skills. In Montreal,  fans still argue if Brian was up to the job, and a lot believe he failed in containing the challenge. Habsology forecast a captaincy change under Therrien, and the potential candidates are known by everyone: Gorges,Markov and Cole.  Gionta's latest long injury will be another reason behind him loosing the C. But, in the end of the day it's just a forecast and we'll have to wait till those long summer days are over.
