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

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

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.

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?

At that time it was more than clear. However, we've seen too many stretches were Zetterberg didn't play well to put it nicely. That doesn't mean he shouldn't be next in command but certainly one can understand why some would question whether or not he'd be the next captain. For the record I'd always thought he'd be the next captain.

Zetterbergs, surely.

And idk I would be kind of pissed of we signed Parise and handed him the C.

It's been obvious for years that Z is the guy. The question is whether they rotate Parise and/or Suter in as an A if they sign.

Offend is the wrong word. "Infuriate" might be better. No slight on Parise's talent intended, but in order to get the "C" in this town, you have to do more for the Wings than just show up.

Helm
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

The C will surely belong to Z

Datsyuk, Kronner rotating with Parise/Suter if the wings get one of them.

If they get both Parise and Suter, Datsyuk and Kronner will get them permanently because that is too many to rotate around.

I wouldnt mind seeing Helm wear an A every now and again to show some of the lazy guys on the team that flying around and hustling every shift gets recognized

Zetterberg will become the next captain and he'll be great just like the last two guys that wore it for the Wings.

I bet if they named Hudler captain he would wear a cape to practice.

C - Zetterberg
A - Datsyuk
A- Parise
A- Kronwall

I know Parise wouldn't have done anything yet, but we are asking him to leave his captaincy. He clearly has some leadership ability and I think it's a nice bone to toss him.

I will be happy either way, but would like it to be Datsyuk.

I would want to see Kronwall as the captain. He gives his 100% each game, plays hard and is young.
