Is this true? I found a Swedish article (translated to English) speculating he is. Not sure if there are any concrete English articles out there.

Who else would it be? For real though, what other Swedes would qualify? I'm drawing a blank.

Who else will we be sending? Definately Kronner and Franzen. Possibly Ericsson and Nyquist?

It seems to me that Alfie would be the choice.

During the 1999-2000 season, Alfredsson was named captain of the Senators after Alexei Yashin was stripped of the captaincy. On 8 July 2009, Alfredsson became the longest serving active captain in the NHL.

Well I always thought it's going to be Zetterberg, Hedin or if he plays Alfie.

Sweden has a really balanced line up, they may lack the starpower of Canada but I think their goaltending and balanced lineup could surprise even Canada.

Alfie wasn't invited to the olympic camp for some reason. He would seem to be the other likely candidate.

He wasn't invited because he was not sure what he was doing yet. There is no doubt that Alfie will be playing in the Olympics now and as much as I love Hank, the Sweden Captaincy should go to Alfie...

Well as I said the Swedish article confirms its Zetterberg. For some reason I can't link it here.. (Probly admin block on non-English sources). We'll find out if its true soon enough I guess.

It's going to be Zetterberg with Alfie and H. Sedin as A:s and we are definitely sending Kronwall, Z, Franzén, Alfie and Ericsson.

For PR reasons alone it will be either OV Rafulov or homecoming hero Kovalchuk although Pasha extremely deserves it.

You are probably right but like you said Pavel deserves it more. Also if Russia chooses Radulov they deserve to lose even though we all know they will anyway

I don't see how Radulov would be a candidate considering he had his captaincy in the KHL stripped away earlier this season.

"The last captain had problems with discipline," said Fedorov. "Will it hurt the previous captain? He shouldn't and cannot be hurt."

I would put money on Kovalchuk.

Alfie get's it but would love to see Z wear the C obviously. Either one I'm cool with.

Having said that I don't see Sweden being too good this Olympic tournament.

Not too good as in not even medal worthy. IMO
