Zetterberg named Captain, 36th Captain in Red Wings History

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I agree with points both you and redwingsdad make but the truth is..don't expect him to wear the C on this team anytime soon if he can't speak any better than what he does. He has to be a leader of this team in all aspects not just his play on ice.

I never said Datsyuk should wear the "C" (as much as I would love o see it) Zetterberg is the obvious choice. If Datsyuk wanted to be Captain, he WOULD have learned to speak english fluently, everyone knows he does not want to be captain though.

Datsyuk and Kronwall will remain with the "A"'s.....wonder who gets the third.</p></blockquote>

My vote is for Helm.

Filppula wouldbe my choice, although Helm definitely should be very highly considered, considering he is the heart of the team.

I also heard that Pasha puts on a show during interviews. He also seems like over the years, especially when he was a rookie, that he has gotten more comfortable within the eyes of the media. He can joke around and act like himself, his interviews are amazing and comical. I just think it took him sometime to get used to cameras in his face, and having being asked questions in a new language, which is expected. I personally think Zetterberg will be more of a outspoken captain unlike Nick. From what i've heard from the players, Nick didn't really raise his voice unless he really had to. I think Stevie and Zett will have a similar leading role in which he'll motivate the players in different ways. If they are going to continue with the 3 A's, it would be filp as Lidstrom said. Zett "C" - Pasha, Kronner, Filp "A"

Datsyuk and Kronwall will remain with the "A"'s.....wonder who gets the third.

To show a long term committment & desire to resign him in the offseason, I think the rotating third A ends up on Flip. Wouldn't be surprised to see it on Cleary either though.

Congrats Henrik! I look forward to generation Z! I just don't know whether or not to put the "C" on my old banged up and somewhat stained jersey or go ahead and order a new one with a "C" on it...

order a new one, changing the old one is like changing lidstroms A-C, it's not right. He was not captain when you slopped pizza and beer on yourself while screaming at ericsson or hudler for losing a puck while Lidstrom was captain. You should definitely order a new one that you can get new stains on while he is captain!

Who is next?

Congrats Z, time to take ahold of this team....I expect 100 points next full season.

So apparently you have been watching me! There is also some wing sauce, forever to be embedded chip shrapnel as well as some blood, sweat & tears. Alas a new era begin's.

Congrats to Z! Certainly well deserved and a worthy successor to Nick. Tough shoes to fill following Stevie and Nick, but Z has earned it with his work ethic and taking on a leadership role through the years.

I like either Cleary or Filppula getting the third "A" if they continue to rotate.

Congrats Z! I'd like to see Helm get the A next. The letters shouldn't go to just skill players. Also, I see helmer as the kind of guy that would raise his play with that kind of responsibility.</p></blockquote>

Problem is he doesnt play enough. Helm has stone hands. If he had some hands, he'd be our captain.
