    Gallagher and Byron named alternates.

    Weber will play maybe 25 games this year. He's gonna get hurt shortly after he comes back.

    The decision was made by the club's hockey management. Weber is preparing for his 14th NHL season in 2018-19, his third with the Canadiens. He was an alternate captain in his first two seasons with Montreal.
    Berg was probably worried that the team would vote for Gallagher.

    Maybe by naming him captain we can get more back in a trade since he's a 'captain'

    No but considering how the C is the trade kiss of death, he may be moved.

    I think people pretty much expected this. Management doesn’t think outside the box.

    It's a stupid idea to have a team vote, It creates tension in the room.

    I remember when Koivu and Corson went head to head and Koivu won.

    Corson was not the same after he felt "letdown" by his teammates.

    It is what it is. Weber isn't part of the future, but he's fine for now to field questions about the team sucking and him not speaking perfect French.

    Weber is the right choice, Gallagher doesn't need additional responsibilities or pressure.

    The big surprise here is Byron being given an A.

    Meh, he's the old-timer at 29. I figure they wanted someone with experience being alternate.

    well there are two sure fire ways to get traded out of Montreal

    start a foundation for children and have a personality.

    IIRC, Weber has neither so he is safe.

    Could have been Petry or Plekanec as well. It's nice recognition for him.

    Danault could have been another candidate.

    I think management figures Danault is gone in 3 years when his contract is up but yeah he would have been a decent choice.

    I think exit on twitter made a good point. Refs and gallagher are not friends.

    Org is going the old “leadership by example” route for the young players being brought into the fold - Gallagher & Byron play every shift as if it’s their last shift & Weber has that old Gainey “presence effect”.

    Who knows if any of these things matter anymore in this era of ballerina tutu hockey but what it is...is what it is
