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.

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.

Parise :ph34r:

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.

You heard it here first!

C: Zetterberg

A: Datsyuk

A: Kronwall

A: Cleary

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.

Zetterberg...and when he retires...Helm.

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

Zetterberg led the handshake at the end of the Preds series.it's obvious who's gonna be our next captain :thumbup:

And he is the one that accepted the Campbell Bowl on Lidstrom's behalf when he was injured in 09. Its clear who second in command was.

Did the wings rotate the A this season between 3 people? Or was it just Pav and Z?

Kronwall had an A for seemingly the entire season. Honestly I felt like he had it on every game. I think they wanted to make it clear to him how much they value him.

What if they were to offer the C to Zach Parise if he becomes a wing? Think that would offend anyone?
