Kyle Okposo and Mark Streit, 2 potential candidates to be named the Isles captain

After previous captain Doug Weight retired, the Islanders will once again find themselves in need of a captain.

There are a few paths the Isles can take.

They can name another veteran player their captain, like they have been the past few season.  Weight or Bill Guerin for example. 

Or they could make a middle aged player the captain.  So he has an element of leadership, but also has a few years.  This way the Isles won't need another captain in a year or two.

The Islanders could follow the NHL hot path and name a young player as their captain.  Some young captains in the league are Jonathan Toews of the Blackhawks, Sidney Crosby of the Penguins and Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals.

Let's take a look at some possible candidates to be the captain of the New York Islanders.
