Not surprising, and well-deserved.

It was just a formality, but still nice to hear!


It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

He will undoubtedly make a great captain... I just wish he would show more emotion. I'm a sucker for players that wear their heart on their sleeve.

While I agree he will be the captain, when I read this article last night I couldn't help but think how Khan knows. He didn't cite a source and the Wings have not officially announced anything, have they?

Ok...Really dumb question here.....

 

Why Hank, and not Dats?

Me too.....

 

I think back to the 90's when Clark, and Gilmour were Leaf captains...Those guys were warriors.

 

Sorry - got that soft spot for that team in T.O.

I am going to go with the simple fact that Daysuk's English is atrocious, seemingly having never made a solid effort to learn the language of the country he has been playing in for so long. A bit off-topic, and I love Datsyuk in general don't get me wrong, but I am slightly offended at his horrible English. I think if he had even passively tried to pick up English he would be fairly fluent by now, considering how long he has been here. It makes me think he must have made a conscious effort to avoid learning it, to still be so horrible...

 

That... and he's older and would like to go back to Russia. We will presumably get a few more solid years of captaincy out of Z.

Ah - good points.

 

I remember Feds picked up English quite well, but I agree - Dats can get by, but doesn't appear overly comfortable...For some insane reason many Swedes around the NHL (excluding our beloved Homer - joking) speak English with very little accent.

 

My 2nd language is limited to a menu at a Mexican restaurant :lol:

I really do not think he didn't learn the language on purpose. He spends the majority of his time working out and playing/practicing. Cut the guy some slack his english has gotten way better over the years. You make him sound selfish, which everyone knows he is not!

Hey like I said, I love the guy, I love his heart and his sense of humour... but I still think what I said is true. It doesn't make him a bad person, but is nevertheless slightly offensive to me. Heck, even Holmstrom can rock out better English, and has been able to for awhile! And that's saying something. :D

 

I guess they could have made Z and Dats co-captains... and Z could have translated and answered questions for Dats during interviews and press conferences. :P

He already does that lmao. Yes Homer did have better broken english, but I am not offended, he came here for one purpose, to make our team better. He has done that ten fold, do I wish he COULD speak more fluently? sure, do I care enough to be offended? Not at all, as long as he keeps dazzling on the ice and carrying our team, he can speak whichever language he wants to.
