Bad back. This will be the first season since 1983 that The Redwings won’t have an Yzerman, a Datsyuk, or a Zetterberg on the top line. Pretty damned impressive if you ask me.

I don’t think they give a 22 year old The C. I think Kronwall gets it.

Kronwall could get it, but we’d be looking for another in a couple-few years.

Too bad abdelkader hasn’t shown the maturity needed to wear it.

Suxor but probably best for all parties involved.

From ‘83 until ‘18, the Wings had a Hall of Famer wearing the C. Kinda amazing.

I kinda wanna see Kronwall get it. It would suck getting your ass lit up by a dude with a giant C on his sweater. Plus, he’s a southpaw. Talk about insult to injury. Getting drilled by a left handed Captain? You’d never hear the end of it.

But, he’s probably done after this year. Maybe they give it to him for this season as an honor, then wait for for Stevie Y to get there before they give it out permanent. But who knows. Having the C gets you a great amount of protection from your line mates. Maybe he decides to stick around.

Has a team ever gone without a Captain?

Sometimes when the captain is injured, a team won’t name a replace and just add a third A. I want to say a team a few years ago did that for a season.

Having now looked at the googles, Stevie Y was just 21. So, maybe Abdelkader gets it.

Could be. Maybe it’s the thing he needs to get to that next level.

Also, I had no idea he was American. With that last name, I figured him for Canadian sure as shit. A Jordanian Pollack from Michigan. Who would have thought.

Maybe not, but what a tremendous boost to the people of Jordan.

Hey look at us! We’re a bombed out shithole, but we got a guy playing pro hockey!

Why not? At least for broadcasts or something. That would be pretty cool. A Captain doing the announcing, and A Captain in the front office.

Also, I did not know until the wiki told me, but Gare has more goals at right wing than Rene Robert for Buffalo. Rene moved to the point on power plays.

I also didn’t know that it was Scotty Bowman who traded Robert to Colorado. For Van Boxmeer.

Man. The hockey wiki rabbit hole is fecking deep.

Pretty much every hockey wiki rabbit hole leads to Bowman eventually.
