So, Lui is Captain. I did not see this one coming! Sure, he`s obviously the leader, but most teams would just continue to have him act as leader, and name some other guy to be the actual Captain. Not my team. They`re special. According to the rule that was linked to by Mike the Yankee, he can’t wear the ”C” on his sweater, so I’m not even sure what the point was. That said, Lui deserves it, and it does send a message that management is determined he stay around for a long time.
Matty Ohlund, Willie Mitchell, and Ryan Kesler will wear As. And I assume do the necessary bitching to the refs that goalie captains aren`t allowed to do. All good choices. Anyone know where I can go to get a nice shiny A sewn on to my Matty Ohlund sweater?
Mike Gillis did say he was going to be unconventional when he came in as GM, and he`s definitely showing it here.
