Z is the man. I always wonder if he's more valuable than Datsyuk.

i don't think he is. I think it would have been a no brainier for datsyuk to be named captain if he wanted it

Anyone suggesting Helm wear any letter on his sweater, have you ever actually heard the man talk? Don't get me wrong, he's one of my favorite Wings, but he has about the equal intelligence of a dinner plate... There is more to a "C" or an "A" than just work ethic and team play...

On his recent back injury (from freep):

Helm said the biggest problem right now is that "it's hard for me to bend down and touch my toes, pick anything up. But, I'm excused from doing anything around the house. I'm going to milk it as long as I can."

 

Seems bright enough to me :)

Captain Hank looked great today earlier at training camp at Compuware.

While I agree with that, in the Datsyuk KHL All-Star skill thread thingamabob, there was a lot of discussion about how he's divorced now, his daughter lives in Russia with his ex-wife, and he really likes it there because he's closer to her.  His contract ends next season, I believe.  While no one here would want it to happen, he could very easily not re-sign, and go back to playing in Russia to be nearer his family.  The Red Wings are not in the habit of doling out the captain's C to someone who isn't going to be here for at least the remainder of their career, which is what they did for Steve, then Nick, and now Hank. 

 

Just my $0.02 on the issue.  Pavs would make a tremendous captain, but there are a lot of extenuating circumstances that I could see keeping him from getting it.
