I’m trying something new this week and posting the captain poll early to try and get more responses. I have not looked at a lot of numbers yet, but I believe I have three solid early choices. Don’t forget, the transfer deadline is Wednesday the 16th at 7:00pm EST so be sure to get all of your trades in and captain set. Remember, you don’t get a Vice Captain this year.

Having trouble deciding on who to pick for your captain? Here are a few things to keep in mind. Is the team playing at home? Are there any key injuries (on either team)? Who had a good Preseason? Did Andrew Wiebe see his shadow this morning?All of these things help. Here are my top choices:
1) Jermaine Defoe: It’s starting to sound like a broken record, but as long as he is on form, I see no reason to stop giving Defoe the armband. The Vancouver game will be the toughest, but we’ve already seen what they can do to Houston and no reason to expect much different.
2) Bradley Wright-Phillips: BWP has scored in 10 of his lasts 11 games and has scored 15 goals in 17 games. I’m impressed and you should be too. This round he has two chances and he should be a top contended for captain.
3) Graham Zusi: I like Kansas City for this round and they have a couple of good attacking options. I think this will be Zusi’s week.
