I don't know if this means they're confirmed to have a captain... the "decision" on the matter could be that they decided to not have one again.

Granted, I do fully expect they'll announce it as Matthews.

Although what "coming up" could mean in a meaningful sense is anyone's guess.

People keep asking about it, Simmons wrote the other day that Shanahan told him they'll be a captain this season, so, I think the announcement is coming shortly (maybe next week)?

I think coming up means when they return to Toronto. And Shanahan said yesterday they would have a Captain this year. My bet is on Matthews, It's his team and he wants it.

It's going to be Matthews for sure. Coming up i.e. before the regular season.

The stache pretty much sealed the deal.

I missed that Shanahan comment... for anyone else who did as well:

Quote
I like our leadership group, said Shanahan. I like that we have several different really good options. Im not speaking out of school, I believe Mike (Babcock) and Kyle (Dubas) and I, we will have a captain this year. And I think we have several good options. Only one person is going to wear a C, but you need lots of captains.

Pfttt, this threads solely just about Babcock saying there will be a captain. I'm still posting the actual captain thread.
