I'm assuming you can read because you're doing it right now. Which is why I'm also assuming that you're smart enough to understand this with out all the fluffy commentary. Since Bobby Clarke last wore the "C" for the Philadelphia Flyers, every player that was named captain in his 20's, and was still in his 20's after that first year, left the city under shitty circumstances:

Dave Poulin - 26, stripped then traded to Boston
Ron Sutter - 25, traded to St. Louis
Rick Tocchet - 25, traded to Pittsburgh
Eric Lindros - 21, stripped then traded to New York
Mike Richards - 23, traded to LA

There you go Mr. Ed. Are you not entertained?

So maybe this guy on the Yahoo! Contributor Network needs to rethink some of these finalists.
