The Captain... is not Ethan Moreau?

Pat Quinn on Captains, and Coaching
"The coach needs to have a captain that understands that his message needs to be carried to the players. The captain has to be responsible to that fact. We don't need just one leader - we need all sorts of leaders [...] he has to carry messages that are from among the players that need to get to the head coach."
Not that it's a big deal or anything, but he refers to the "Captain" as some sort of abstract person or idea. Ethan Moreau is the Oilers' current captain, but never in his interview does Pat Quinn mention Ethan Moreau's name once. Does this indicate that Quinn and Renney will be picking their own guy?

And if it is (as often indicated) that Quinn has no idea about anyone on this team... then why is he commenting? You can't really comment on something you know nothing about.

Moreau is set to win an NHL award this weekend.

Im not sure old man Quinn knows one player on the team. I don't think he has ever mentioned one player by name in any of his interviews.

"you've got a great talented center here that never distributes the puck. Is he a great talent? Yeah. But he's like playing with the Lone Ranger."

That`s Quinn referring to Hemsky.

I also agree he knows jack squat about the current Oilers.

Well if he's agreeing to Hemsky as a talented center, then I would have to agree.

Furthermore, I think he shouldn't really comment on a team he doesn't know anything about.
