Not an easy decision to make, but I don't think you can wrong with Max or PK. Max got it because he doesn't chirp at the refs.

A CT Yankee, Captain in Montreal's Court. Who'd have thunk it?

Ouch, how much money is he going to have to give to charity now?

I kid, as EL said could have gone either way just glad they named one.

PK and Max are both working on their French, so you know they're taking this seriously.

It was actually a player vote. Max won by a comfortable amount.

Now Bergevin has to explain to a neighbor that he is in fact not the Canadiens captain.

#Habs Max Pacioretty has a -51 decline in plus minus from this season to last season (+38 last season, -13 this season).


Goals:

2013-14 39g
2014-15 37g
2015-16 24g

Max's first season as captain has been a disaster. It started with a very serious off-season injury that I don't think he's totally recovered from. It was a player vote so I can't criticize the move, but he's looked out of his depth.

Decision time looming on the Habs' captain. Pacioretty had a down season, missing 30 goals after five seasons of reaching the mark.

In 2016-17, the team won the division and got Lundqvist'd (eww) in the first round. Max couldn't score and took a lot of the blame.

In 2017-18, they were just plain bad.

If they can re-sign him to the Marchand deal (8 years/6.2M AAV) after a down year, they should do it. Unfortunately, he's probably looking to get paid after his last team-friendly deal and scoring 30 will net him a sweet payday easily.

So what do the Habs do? Deal him now and start yet another culture shift, or wait and see what the season holds? Or do you try to sign him now and commit to a Price-Weber-Max nucleus for the next decade?

He's an elite goal scorer, but is he a true captain? Would he be better off elsewhere? Would the Habs be better off trading him for a centre and putting Shea as captain?
