Well deserved, he learned from the best captain in hockey history so I think we'll be fine.

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.

Who is next?

 

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

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.

First, Helmer doesn't have stone hands, quite frankly he's far from stone hands. Does he have mitts made of silk? No. That doesn't qualify and make a captain though. The boys work ethic is unreal, he isn't scared of throwing his body around, he's easily one the best pk'ers on this team, he works the corners with the best of them, and each year he brings more improvement to the table.

This is my all-time favorite Hank shift:


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Iginla will get the same treatment in Calgary as Modano had in Dallas.

 

In some dark basement "Eva" is sewing the "C" on his recently acquired Hudler - Flames jersey.

I would rather Helm get an A over Filppulla.  Maybe not Cleary, I'm not sure.  With a 3 man alternate captain rotation, it makes sense that Datsyuk and Kronwall each wear an A, as forward and defensive leaders, respectively.  But I would rather the bottom six have representation than another skill forward.  Especially when the player in question (Helm) has the heart and will to be a true leader.
