Well, it seems the day has come. Who will be the next captain ? Its either going to be Datsyuk or Zetterberg.

It's gonna be Setter-bearj. Really the only option. Dats doesn't want it, and there's really noone else that has the skillset Z does.

It's been Hank's job since he signed that contract. Pavs will take a permanent A, so will Kronner more than likely.

Without a doubt Zetterberg. Pasha is a leader by example, but lets face it, hes not the greatest talker. Zetterberg has all the tools to take the next captaincy.

No doubt it will be Z. I also can see big Bert thrown in the "A" rotation.

Not sure how I feel about Zetterberg as the captain. Wouldn't be terrible, but I don't like that he's our best choice at this point. He's got 95% of what it takes to be a great captain, but there just seems to be something missing. I'm not even sure what it is, but something about it just doesn't feel right to me.

It'll probably be Filppula. He's got it all.

In all seriousness though, it will be the era of Captain Z!

I know.
Zetterberg is not a bad choice, but it's not as clear cut as Lidstrom after Yzerman.

Or the Wings will bring back Lilja and give him the C.

Could be that way. The 4th A could go to Filppula as well. Both Cleary and Fil are due for new contracts. Fil seems like the better long-term investment.

Ya, I would think Cleary will be done after next season...
