Seriously.. who is this dude? 379 points in 508 games.

OK was actually a strong captain. Came to a crap Pens team from the Flyers along with Ross Lonsberry and Mark Taylor for our 1st round pick... Behn Wilson i believe. Kindrachuk wore his heart on his sleave and was a leader on that club.

I don't think McKenna really counts since it was one game and he only wore it because of a jersey auction. Got blown out by the Habs I think? Hmm should I bid on a Koivu or McKenna sweater???

Don't even go there.

Anyone who ever watched him play would never say that.

Not much skill, but maybe the all-time Pens "he-gave-it-everything-he-had-and-left-it-all-on-the-ice" kind of guy.

Props to Ruskowski.

Yep, Rusko was tough as nails. A vocal leader, and also by what he did on the ice. There aren't many guys left like this.

He was captain when I went to my first game(8 dollar seats in the second row), so I definetly remeber him.
Plus, he has an awesome name!!!!!!! :thumb:

Looking at the list on the Wikipedia page, I'm going to go with "No Captain." Heck, that guy was captain three different times and I still don't remember him at all.
