Lidstrom sat next to Stevie, Z sat next to Lids, and Fil sits next to Z. That is an indication. It's speculation at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen.

You've got it wrong. Zetterberg's locker was placed next to Yzerman's in 2005. As such, no indication of the type you're suggesting exists.

I personally don't think Fil's english is bad at all. He's always been easy to understand during interviews. Pav has come a long way, but he's still a hilarious adventure to try and decipher.

I guess my point is I don't see a language barrier being an obstruction to a leadership role for Fil. Personally I would like to see Cleary get the third "A" if they decide to rotate three again.

You quoted me before I could change that up...but I know it was some kind of locker stall thing they do to put these future leaders next to current leaders. Fil was mentioned in that regard. Not only that, but his name came out of Lidstrom's mouth when asked about a replacement captain. I think that is enough to give merit to.

I will be happy with either Zetterberg or Datsyuk as Captain but it will probably be

Zetterberg - C
Datsyuk - A
Kronwall - A
Filppula - A (if rotating)

The words right from Nick's mouth:

"I might get asked about my opinion of it, but I think the coaching staff and management will find a very good captain for this team," Lidstrom said.
"I think there's a few candidates that are very fit to fill that role. I think Zetterberg has been a leader for a few years. (Niklas) Kronwall emerged as a leader. I think (Valtteri Filppula) is one of the players."

And more on the Wings historically partnering up future leaders with current, specifically Yzerman-Lapointe, Yzerman-Zetterberg, & Zetterberg-Filppula:

Interesting I could easily see

A - Kronwall
A - Datsyuk
A - if rotating Helm/Filps

Zetterberg was put next to Yzerman's locker when the latter was captain. Filppula's locker being next to Zetterberg's when Z was neither captain nor guaranteed to be the next captain has no significance whatsoever. More, Filppula speaks poor English with a heavy accent, has never been noted as a leader in the locker room, and has not been noted as having any significant leadership potential. Whatever article you read on the matter was likely 100% speculative. Was it from BleacherReport?


next in line? no. after Z though, I have read something on that before. i looked for the article but couldn't find it. basically it was talking about how detroit has had its next captains sit next to its previous ones in the locker room before and mentioned something about filp sitting next to Z (and maybe lids, i don't remember)

Although, i for one think that by the time zette is done being captain/retiring, smith will be ready to take over the C as he'll likely be a top 2 D-man by then and be younger than filp.

it's all speculation. but filp will likely get zette's A when he steps up as captain.



speculative? yeah, i know.
