And from that perspective, if that's something that you had been thinking about, if you were thinking, 'I'm still (upset) at 2010 and I better get picked this time (for Team Canada), and I have issues with the kids and youth hockey, maybe you should say, before they pick a captain, 'I'm cool with wearing an 'A.'
