According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Subban is a 5/4 favorite to be named the next captain of the Canadiens while Tomas Plekanec has the next best odds at 3/2. Andrei Markov is also 2/1 while the current long shot is Max Pacioretty at 7/1 odds.

Subban has played all five of his NHL seasons in Montreal and has logged 284 games for the Canadiens over that time span. He has 42 career goals, 125 assists and 167 points while carrying a career plus/minus of plus-10. He also leads a current list of NHL players filing for arbitration.

Plekanec, meanwhile, has spent the past 10 seasons in Montreal after being selected by the team with the 71st overall pick in 2001. He's logged 679 games played with the Habs while racking up 439 points during that time frame. He also has 176 career goals with 263 assists. 

Brian Gionta was the captain a year ago but he signed a three-year, $12.75 million contract with the Sabres in the offseason. He admitted to leaving Montreal with a "heavy heart."

"It's not an easy thing to come to terms with, but we had to look to the future and we're excited about that," Gionta told the Montreal Gazette. "But the last five years have been a huge part of our life and we're very lucky to have experienced it and very grateful for it."
