All-Star defenseman Kimmo Timonen calling out teammates in a post-game interview the other day led to speculation Flyers management soon might switch the letter on the front of his game jersey from â€œAâ€ to â€œC.â€ After all, Flyers captain Chris Pronger hasnâ€™t played since November and was ruled done for the season in December. â€œIt hasnâ€™t come up,â€ coach Peter Laviolette said Monday, a full day off for his team. â€œRight now Chris Pronger is the captain of the team. Heâ€™s injured. We have experienced leadership in the room with Kimmo and Danny (Briere), Scott Hartnell, Claude (Giroux), Jaromir (Jagr) â€¦ We have lots of leadership in the room.â€ Timonen and Danny Briere have been alternate captains all season, and Claude Giroux became a third when Pronger was lost.
