In an otherwise excellent write-up in today’s Post-Dispatch, Dan O’Neil wrote something oddly interesting as part of the introduction. To quote:â†µ
Last summer there was angst over who should replace Eric Brewer as the Blues’ captain. Many favored emerging young quarterback Alex Pietrangelo for the role. Others thought two-way standout Alex Steen might wear the “C” well. Some pointed to Barret Jackman, while still others wondered if incoming veterans Jamie Langenbrunner or Jason Arnott might be the best choice.â†µ
Please in the comments, if you were one of the ones who advocated anyone other than Backes (or Jackman) for captain, explain yourself.
