Jason Arnott, your new Nashville Predators Captain

The Nashville Predators are introducing Jason Arnott this afternoon as the team's new captain in light of Kimmo Timonen's departure to Philadelphia earlier this summer.  He becomes the fourth player to hold that honor in the Music City, after Tom Fitzgerald (1998-2002), Greg Johnson (2002-06), and Timonen (2006-07).

Personally, I think Arnott makes a fine choice as captain.  He's a consistent, veteran performer with impeccable playoff credentials, having scored the Stanley Cup-winning goal in overtime against Dallas in 2000.  Many local fans would have liked to see Steve Sullivan don the "C", and Sully recently gave an interview in which he expressed his hopes to be considered for that honor despite his history of injuries.  I'm sure he'll still wear an "A" and be a strong influence on the team once he returns from back surgery, but Arnott is just the kind of player you hope to build a franchise around.
