Happy Lent! In today’s show, Fr. Geoff and Fr. Darryl team up to discuss NHL captains. Who were the best captains the years before we were born (up to the late 1970s)? Who were the best captains as we grew up in the 1980s and 1990s? Who are the best captains playing now?

Let us know your thoughts! Were we correct? Are we crazy?! Who were the best captains in NHL history and who are the best playing now?
