It looks like Kronwall will get the nod. I still feel that Pasha should be next in line for Captain even though the general consensus is picking Hank.

Most people won't remember Kronwall wearing the A on his jersey because most people turned the tv off it was against the blues when we got destroyed

Just to echo what other people here have said, I'd like to see Kronwall wear the A full-time now that Drapes has retired. I believe he's more than earned it during his time here. I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, and if so I apologize for asking again, but is there some rule that states you have to have a certain number of full-time alternate/assistant captains? I would imagine there's a cap, otherwise what's to stop a team from outfitting their entire roster with letters, but if the Wings went with the scenario below, would that be acceptable?

C - Nick
A - Hank
A - Pavs
A - Kronner

I think the only rule is that teams have to name one captain and two assistant for each game. No more, no less. I don't think the rules have anything against it if a team wants to have different captains every game.

From the official rulebook (portion of interest bolded):

Rule 6 - Captain and Alternate Captains

6.1 Captain - One Captain shall be appointed by each team, and he alone shall have the privilege of discussing with the Referee any questions relating to interpretation of rules which may arise during the progress of a game. He shall wear the letter “C,” approximately three inches (3'') in height and in contrasting color, in a conspicuous position on the front of his sweater. No co-Captains are permitted. Either one Captain and no more than two Alternate Captains, or no Captain and no more than three Alternate Captains are permitted (see 6.2).

Only the Captain, when invited to do so by the Referee, shall have the privilege of discussing any point relating to the interpretation of rules. Any Captain, Alternate Captain or any player who comes off the bench and makes any protest or intervention with the officials for any purpose shall be assessed a minor penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct under Rule 40 – Abuse of Officials. Should this protest continue, he may be assessed a misconduct penalty, and if it further continues, a game misconduct penalty shall be warranted.

A complaint about a penalty is NOT a matter “relating to the interpretation of the rules” and a minor penalty shall be imposed against any Captain, Alternate Captain or any other player making such a complaint.

The Referee and Official Scorer shall be advised, prior to the start of each game, the name of the Captain and the Alternate Captains of both teams.

No playing Coach or playing Manager or goalkeeper shall be permitted to act as Captain or Alternate Captain.

6.2 Alternate Captains – If the permanent Captain is not on the ice, Alternate Captains (not more than two) shall be accorded the privileges of the Captain. Alternate Captains shall wear the letter “A” approximately three inches (3'') in height and in contrasting color, in a conspicuous position on the front of their sweaters.

Okay, so then Kronner would only be a part-time alternate captain, if either Nick, Pavs, or Hank were injured. Gotcha. Thanks to you both.

There can only be three total (1C+2A or 3A) per game. If Kronner gets the A, they'd take turns like they did with Drapes.

Technically, you could have 3 different guys each game, although that would be silly.
