I would have to say Lidstrom. I think he's the smartist, the best, he's been there the longest, and he can connect to all the Swedes that are on the team.

If going with a veteran I'd say Draper, but I think it's going to be Zetts...

Lidstrom or Zetterberg. Although I'd prefer a NA captain.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Zetterberg, but I did read in a magazine that Draper was under some consideration for the role.

Shanahan. Lidstrom has the personality of an unusually dull rock. He's a great player, but I would want someone a little more fiery to wear the C, someone with the ability to lead by example AND the ability to take charge in the locker room and isn't afraid to shake things up if he has to. Shanahan is that guy, he should be captain the next 2-3 years until he retires, then the new generation can take over.

“He’s got the potential to do that. He has got all the talent. He has got the heart and determination as well.�
-Future Hall of Fame Defenseman Niklas Lidstrom (on Henrik Zetterberg's potential to be captain of the Redwings after Steve Yzerman retires) April 2004

"The best story about Zetterberg is Nick Lidstrom brought him in to see a friend of mine in the car business and he told him, 'I want you to meet the next Steve Yzerman.' That was in September, after training camp, before he'd played a game. Pretty good scout, that Nick Lidstrom!"
-Legendary Redwings Head Coach and advisor Scotty Bowman, November 2003

"Obviously, he's a guy that we're going to build around going forward. I mean, he's a complete player. He's got great hands, great instincts, he's great in traffic and he really sees the ice well. And he's a good person. He's really grounded. He comes to the rink everyday, he works hard..."
-Detroit Redwings General Manager Ken Holland, November 2003

It's a damn close call. I'm gonna guess Lidstrom for now, but I won't be surprised if Shanahan gets the C. Zetterberg would be excellent as well, but I think he needs another year or two to finish maturing.
