Shero told NJ.com that they won't name a new captain until the proper leader emerges in the 2015-2016 batch of players, but stressed that doesn't indicate a lack of leadership on the team.
"If we didn't have a captain to start the season, it wouldn't mean we don't have a leader. Not at all. There are a number of teams with no captains. I don't know if Columbus had one last season and, of course, Minnesota had rotating captains with Jacques (Lemaire). I don't want to make a big deal out of it."
