As the Bruins' training camp nears, attention once again focuses on Marchand as a primary candidate to succeed Patrice Bergeron as team captain, a role loaded with responsibility.

In discussions among Coach Jim Montgomery, General Manager Don Sweeney, and President Cam Neely about the new captain, Neely emphasized the desired qualities in a leader.

"First and foremost, you want someone that comes to play hard and work hard every day,"
Neely stressed, highlighting the legacy of diligent captains like Ray Bourque, Zdeno Chara, and Bergeron who set examples for the team.

Montgomery echoed these sentiments, describing the ideal captain as a figure with a strong voice, empathy, and a multi-faceted role akin to a principal, guidance counselor, and mediator.


They need to be confident, unafraid to mentor teammates and hold them accountable, even willing to confront coaches when necessary. This leader should be adept at communicating with everyone, including the media, ensuring a daily presence that keeps a finger on the team's pulse.
