The first thing you notice about Nicklas Lidstrom’s new jersey is the “C.” It’s on the right side, instead of the left.
The Red Wings wanted to protect the tradition of the Winged Wheel as much as possible with the new streamlined Reebok jerseys all NHL teams are using this season, but that’s one concession they had to make. And it only affects three players, Lidstrom and his two alternate captains.

The letters had to be moved because the new jerseys are made of multiple panels, and there wasn’t room for them above the tip of the Winged Wheel on the left side without hitting a seam. And if you look at some old Wings photos, that’s actually been done before, too.


OMG FU BETTMAN!

Not a big deal.



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.

Bettman must be stopped!

This must be an anti-canada movement!

Bring back Fedorov!

We need an enforcer!




Nice to hear how much the Wings wanted to minimize change smile.gif

Not a big deal to me. As long as there is a letter instead of a different color helmet or an armband or something like that.

I have a feeling the move of the C/A's will be debated on LGW and all other forums for the rest of time.
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).

That kind of change is not a big deal...I can live with it. Besides, weren't the letters on the right like, years and years ago?

As long as they don't start putting the sweater numbers on the front...have I mentioned how much I effing HATE that? LOL
