In Topic: future captains?

Yesterday, 10:41 PM

I've been waiting a long time for someone to make this thread.

Hands down I believe DeKeyser will be the captain of this team after Z retires. Michigan boy, hell of a player, and he has a great work ethic. Plus he was captain at WMU, I believe, so he's been in the leader role before.

C- Dekeyser
A- Nyquist
A- Smith/Abby

I could see Mantha getting an A if he pans out. He composes himself very well for someone so young. Same with Oullet and Sproul.

Very excited for the next generation of Wings!

Nastasiuk shows a lot of promise as a Draper-type leader as well, imo.

He's the master at drawing goaltender interference.  He's had multiple goals waived off because he initiates contact with the player. 


Naturally I couldn't find it on TSN's website anymore (404 not found) but Kerry Fraser wrote a piece on Price's exploiting the rule. 




In the clip Price trips the Tampa player, then throws himself into the player again at the far post. 

Wow, that call was brutal.  


Hey, at least there's going to be a list of known divers in the NHL!  =D

I am on the boarder with Tatar being tradeable. He has potential but I just dont see him having the finishing touch necessary to be a top 6 guy.

I still think he will turn out to be a good top 6 winger, I just think it will take him another season or two to really cement himself as a legit NHL winger.  I think trading him would be a bad idea.


But I agree about his inability to finish these first few games.  He's been trying to make too many moves and it seems like he shoots when he should pass and dekes when he should shoot.  The season is young, luckily.  He'll find his game.
