While I understand the rule from the NHL's perspective, it makes no sense to not allow the goalie to be the captain or assistant captain for their team. This is CLUB roller hockey. 90% of the teams in the country are run by students and some of them happen to be goalies. It makes absolutely no sense that a goalie is prohibited from being the legitamite captain of his team.
I know in the SECRHL alone Guy Antonacci for UT does almost everything off the rink for his team and I believe he started the team 5 years ago. While he wears an "A" he has no authority to speak with ref's or anything and is forced to cover the "A" on his jersey from time to time by a ref who feels like being difficult that game.
The situation is the same with myself. I make all the travel arrangements, do all the communicating with he school and league, and am identified by my teamates as a captain of my team.
While I do not know the specifics of NCST's team. I do know that their goalie wears an "A".
I am sure there are many more teams around the country where the goalie is the leader of his team but because of this rule are unrecognized on the rink. What makes a goalie unable to be the teams captain??? Nothing. While I understand it would waste time if everytime there was an issue the goalie would have to skate to center ice to meet with the refs which wastes time, but that is why most teams have up to 3 captains.
My point is this. If a player does the work and is the leader of his team,especially in a league where the teams are run by the players, he deserves to be the recognized captain regardless of the position he plays.
