If you ask me who the new captain of the Canucks should be I'd have to say Ryan Kesler. I like how hard he works, his style of play and there's just something about him that to me would make a good captain. I imagine he'd give a great motivational speech in the locker room when it comes down to the most important game of the season next year.
Two years before the Olympics if you said that Kesler would make Team USA, he would have been considered a long shot. But his defensive style of play won him a spot on the roster, and when he played against Team Canada, he drove me up the wall with his grinding style. I guess that's how other fans view him when the Canucks play their team. So many other bloggers of other teams that I know think that Kesler should be captain because they were swayed by his performance in the Olympics.
In Vancouver, we know that Kes doesn't like losing, he's often vocal about his dislike for it. You can see his annoyance of it when he speaks to the media but yet he's good with the media. It's a good thing he works well with the attention since he plays for a team in a city where the media is sometimes quite crazy.
During the summer his workout routine sounded similar to what Gary Roberts puts players like Stamkos through:
