Poll: Who should be the Sabres' captain?

By John Vogl

Just two days away from the start of the NHL season, the Sabres don't have a captain. Coach Ron Rolston is expected to name one Tuesday.

"We have a lot of guys that could be in that situation for us," Rolston said today. "We’re looking for guys who are respected in the room, set examples in the room, especially with a younger team; guys who can hold those young guys in terms of their attention and help those young guys, can help them develop but also make those guys accountable.

"For us, it’s all about making sure they’re setting the standard for those younger players and the team, for that matter. That’s what we’ll be looking for."

So, who do you think fits that role for the Sabres?
