Hell No! The C has to go to, will go to Larkin...

I’ll be very surprised if Larkin isn’t named Captain before the season. I doubt Dats even gets/wants an A if he comes back. He’s never had much of an ego on that front and is more of a lead by example type.

What does having an A or C have to do with ego. If he leads by example he should be an A or C. Just like Lidstrom, Zetterberg and Yzerman all were. None of them really talked much or had an “ego”

Usually is the non-ego guys who become captains.

The Babcock Boner Line? 

More like Holland.  Babcock had nothing to do with Nielsen.  He did overplay Glendenning, though.  Not sure how much of Abdelakder getting a large contract ultimately ties back to Babcock. 

If those three players could magically vanish, along with the Abdelkader and Nielsen contracts, this team would be in significantly better shape.  More playing time for younger players and more cap space.

I'm not going to speak on the ego part, but no way Datsyuk gets the C after leaving the team for three years, coming back for one final season. I'm kind of on the fence about Datsyuk coming back, but if he does, I'd be a little pissed if he was given the C over Larkin. No way it happens.

Yeah he probably doesn’t get it because of the way he left.

But I’d rather them strip the A from Abdelkader and give it to Datsyuk.

I also personally think the “C” should be left vacant (or with Zetterberg technically?) for another year.

You do that and you run the risk of Abdelkader asking to be released from his contract.

Absolutely. I would have no issue with Dastyuk getting an 'A', especially if it's off the chest of Abdelkader or Nielsen...

Nah. I was okay with one year without a captain. But it's time to transition from the old (Zetterberg) era to the new (Larkin) era.

I want Yzerman and Zetterberg out on the ice during the season opener pre-game to present the 'C' to Larkin...

Ericsson should be paired with Datsyuk. For all his f***up would be negated.

Truth be told - he'll be a little bit slower courtesy of his age, but I believe he'll still have his mental sharpness/edge for the game, and his hands/passing/shooting will still be well above average.

IMHO he'll still be in the top 6 forward group, will play 70 - 75 games, and have a legit shot at 50, or more pts.

If Witkowski is back, there's no reason he should not get an A.  His beard and manliness are the kind of leadership qualities exemplified on Game of Thrones.  Larkin and Kronwall get the other A.  If Kronwall is gone, it goes to Green.

I think that if we draft Podholzin in June, there's a good chance we sign Datstuk in July.

Or we could just give him another made up position. How does Assistant to the Assistant General Manager sound?

And you didn't answer it, you complained about their contracts

Who would rather play in your lineup? Datsyuk or any three of them?

No one's expecting him to play 82 games either dumb guy

 

You don't sign a guy expecting he's only going to play 50 or 60 games unless it's a reserve player.
