We all love Helm, but no to getting an A this early. Draper got an A because he was a leader on and off the ice.
I'm surprised Lidstroms three favorites had Kronwall and Filppula in the mix with Zetterberg. I'd be ok with any of the 3. Plus, we never know, maybe Zetterberg doesn't want the C and will turn it down in favor of one of the younger players.

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

C-Datsyuk
A-Zetterberg
A-Krownall/Filppula



I'd kill to see that happen, but unfortunately, I think you and I are in the minority.

It's probably between Zette and Kronner. Leaning more towards Zette but I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it to Kronner. Having a D man as cap is good because they're out on the ice more often. But captains usually aren't the biggest hitters.. We'll see soon.

I think it's safe for all of you with Zetterberg jerseys to put a "C" on it.

Zetterberg. The way he played in the 2nd half of last season, and into the playoffs.. and then went on to play his heart out in the World Champs for Sweden, has proven to me that it's time he gets a C on his jersey. Pavel may not have been 100% but I wasn't really happy with his performance in the playoffs.

There's also the matter of the contracts, Z will be here the rest of his career, for sure. Pavel.. I so hope he re-signs here but it's not for certain. Combine that with Z being better at english and I think the answer is obvious.

I absolutely love Pav though and we are lucky to have 2 such great choices for Captain.. Yzerman, Lidstrom, Zetterberg/Datsyuk.. wow. And some teams struggle to even find one player that is fit for the 'C'.


Just need to find a way to keep Zetterberg healthy and in tip-top shape for longer stretches. Any medical research updates in Sweden that he can use? Hehe.

Zetterberg.

Datsyuk and Kronwall will keep on keepin' on with the A's, I guess another A might be given to Flipper or Holmstrom if he's still with the team.

I say bring Homer back for one more year, give him the C, & watch hilarity ensue as refs across the NHL have to translate his Swenglish.

That is a brilliant idea.

Just getting to watch O'Halloran have to talk with Homer after disallowing one of his goals would be totally worth it.

I'm kind of annoyed because I just got a Zett jersey a few months ago with an "A" on it and I think you are absolutely right here. He's probably gonna be our next captain and my 4 month old jersey is already obsolete like my computer was a week after I got it.

+96 for Homer w/ the C.

Hes the last of the old guard although I expect a slightly less intelligible presser than Nicks in the next few days.

Just think, it could be a new precedent for Wings Captains. We can start with Homer for a year, then on to Pavs after that.

Captains that no one can understand!!!

...Whodda Thunk?? ;)

Seriously though its sad to see Nick go and I hope that a Wings lifer is picked. Z or Kronner are looking like the two front runners and personally, Id rather see Kron as Captain.

I see Kron as a guy that goes out every shift and makes a difference. Z is a superstar but I just dont see his impact on the ice as important as the two Nicks were and now one Nick every night and every shift..

So if Homer doesnt get it or retires I hope to see Kron with the C next season.
I'M WRECKING SHOP!!!

I think its almost a lock that it will be Hank. From Rotoworld:

-Henrik Zetterberg is a prime candidate to be the next captain of the Detroit Red Wings now that Nicklas Lidstrom has retired.
Zetterberg drew praise for his play and leadership this past season and in the playoffs from Lidstrom at the defenseman's retirement news conference. The talented forward also has the support of his existing teammates. "He's like Nick but a little more vocal," said Daniel Cleary on Thursday. "He's the ultimate team player. He cares about winning and has a great work ethic. He loves his teammates and the guys love him and respect him a lot. He's my 1A, B and C."-

looks like cleary slipped up and already said Z will be next captain. big surprise..

"We'll be in great hands," Cleary said. "We'll have a great captain in Zetterberg. Z is the ultimate ... he's like Nick, but a little more vocal. Ultimate team player, all he cares about is winning. Great work ethic.

No way, man! That makes it all the cooler down the road. I still have my Fedorov jersey with the A on it, and love it as a bit of a rarity. Shows I was around "back then." Wear that sucker with pride even after Z takes the C :)
