Getting a captain's C stitched

08 February 2014 - 06:00 PM

I recently bought a Zetterberg jersey on Amazon. I have been happy with the product, but it did not come with the captain's "C" stitched on it. I was wondering what would be the best place to do so. I have heard that at the Joe that you can purchase a "C" and stitch it on yourself, but seeing that I have no such skills, I am looking for a place that can provide and stitch the C on for me. Anyone have any pointers?


I'm sure this has been brought up before, and I apologize for that. 



Stamkos vs Tavares

23 January 2014 - 03:17 PM

I want to make it clear that we are not getting either guy. This is purely hypothetical. It has been mentioned quite a bit that the Wings do not have a future #1 center in the pipeline. A Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, Getzlaf, Staal, or Bergeron caliber guy. If the Wings had the choice of Steven Stamkos or John Tavares, and could get one of the two through a trade, who would you go with?


It is a tough choice. Personally, I would go with Tavares, as he has been able to carry a team without someone like Martin St. Louis next to him, and has shown to be less injury prone. But the Wings couldn't go wrong with either guy.


Again, it's not happening. Even if the Wings offered 5 first round picks, Nyquist, Sproul, and Mrazek, I still doubt Garth Snow or Stevie would take is seriously.


Who would you rather have? Let's hear it.





Captain vacancies

My predictions for the eight vacancies:


NY Islanders: Tavares. DUH


Dallas: Jamie Benn


Ottawa: Jason Spezza


Buffalo: Tyler Myers


Columbus: RJ Umberger


Calgary: Jiri Hudler


Tampa Bay: Steven Stamkos


Edmonton: Taylor Hall


I'm completely joking about Calgary. It will probably remain empty. That franchise is on a sad path. Too bad we can't beat them.


Who do you guys think will fill the empty captain vacancies?


Zetterberg's Future

01 May 2013 - 08:13 PM

Hi everyone, first time poster here. Really like this forum btw, seems like its really active and the fans are mostly knowledgeable.


I'm 20 years old, so in my lifetime the Wings have had Yzerman as captain for 14 of those years and Lidstrom for 6. Starting this year, it's been passed on to Zetterberg. I was just wondering how long you guys think Zetterberg's tenure will be here as captain. I'm under the assumption that as long as he is playing and not retired, that Z will remain the captain. My take is that he will last around 6 years like Lids, putting him at nearly 40 by then.


The Wings have had the best captain situation in the past 20+ years, which is part of the reason why in my lifetime we have never missed the playoffs. I really hope it stays that way, and as long as Z is here I'm sure it will. How much longer do you guys see him playing? How much longer can he sustain this high level of play? Thanks
