I think Zetterberg should be the next captain, he`s the future of the organisation. When Yzerman was named captain, he wasn`t the oldest or most experienced on the team, but he was the future and that`s why they named him captain. The same should be done with Zetterberg. The vets will be there for him and help him grow into the role.

I didn`t check it, but I think Ogrodnick had pretty much the same amount of points (if not better) as Yzerman in the seasons prior to naming Yzerman as captain. And I think Gallant had started to play quite well too.
IMO a captain should be one of the best players, but not necessarily the best.

Z.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Facts. Who needs facts? You can prove anything with facts... 10% of all people know that...

I´d love to see Z as captain. He leads by example like Yzerman does.

in my opinion to be captain its not how good your are its what your personality is like. I think Shanahan would fit in exceptionally will in the captain role untill he retires, then hand the C over to zetterberg

Lids has earned it, and will get it. That being said, Shanny and Drapes would be good Captains since they are both quite vocal on the ice.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I agree. Shanny should get it seeing as how I think he has the personality of a captain, then give Zetterberg the C.

I really like Henrik Zetterberg, but it's hard to argue against Nicklas Lidstrom. The Norris is, without a doubt, his and he'll get a few MVP votes too. Nick might be a little soft-spoken, but so is Steve Yzerman, and if nothing else, I'm sure he's a very calm presence on the ice and in the locker room.
