    I'm not saying that Abdelkader deserves the C, Because he doesn't i really don't know who'd get the C if Zetterberg retired or was traded. I think Larkin eventually gets it just not yet.

    Captain Jimmy Howard!
    But seriously we have no good candidates after z. Kronwall would be obvious but he's done too.
    Gotta go with Larkin even though he's young

    The drop on goals makes me wonder if the back is flaring up again. Would make sense if he isn't able to shoot. Any significant change in shot attempts?

    I highly doubt they're going to give the c to a player like Abby. If I had to put money on it I'd bet the farm on Larkin. Virtual lock, imo.

    If Zetterberg were ever traded, I'm confident the team would go with 3 As to round-out the year. As far as the players are concerned, regardless of his play, all I've ever heard from the mouth of the horse(s) is that Kronwall is the voice in the locker-room, the most reputable player, the athlete you'd most want to emulate on the team, etc. That always surprised me but if he were around without Z, he'd be our man, whether wearing the stitched C or not. H'ed at least be the acting C.

    As far as captains of the future go, I think everything about the organization's opinion of him from draft day, their promotion of him to the roster and as a PR player, and his role on the ice this year says that Larkin gets the next C.

    If his back is hurt there is absolutely no reason to play him. Zero.

    Even if he went LTIR it would hurt. The cap would have to go up over $25 million... all the way to $103 million... for the Wings to beat the preseason 10% overage.

    Not that I'm saying it isn't possible, because it totally is with the GM/coach combo.

    Realistically the second half of this season on they need to stop double shifting Z and put him in the middle 6 with Larkin being given top line duties or sharing them with Nielsen.

    Kronner always comes a cross as more vocal, and more of a traditional warrior chief than Z, but Zetterberg's combination of talent, consistency, work ethic and on ice willingness to help line mates means he was always the more likely Captain.

    Larkin, is, as you say, the coming man, unless we draft someone who blows our minds between now and then.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Abdelkader is Captain before Larkin. The moment that happens is the moment I hop to a different team.

    Afterall, Abdelkader has been Holland's prodical son and even Captain team USA in 2014 world championships. You know the same WCs that he got USA eliminated with his 5 minute major vs the Czechs. Should I mention that wasn't his first charging penalty of the game either?

    Reminds me of when he kept taking stupid penalties in the 3rd period of all those games during the SJs series.

    1 more thing, that was the 2nd suspension he received during that tournament. Oh boy, what a leader.

    Larkin will get the C after Zetterberg easily IMO, they are already starting the marketing push for that kid.

    That's actually not true.

    Franzen is ok'd for SOIR (Season Opening LTIR) which I believe applies if you've been out the entire previous year. So his 3.9M is off the cap before calculating the cap.

    Z going LTIR would be 6M. Why on earth would they need 20M for it?

    Kronner would more likely retire than go on LTIR, so the Wings would have 3M recapture not 4.75M LTIR.

    I don't understand your math in the slightest.

    I think I've seen him a few times with the A on his jersey.

    Yeah honestly is Z were traded or did retire, Pretty sure the C goes right to Larkin. Can't see any one else other then Larkin with the C.

    Why would there be recapture for Kronwall? He didn't sign one of those 10 year+ deals, and didn't sign his latest contract after 35+? If he retires early his contract should come off the books, as he wouldn't get paid for it.

    Franzen, Kronwall, and Z all got hit with recapture.

    Length of contract doesn't matter. It is cash value of contract vs. cap hit of contract. Teams need to account for the cap hit that they avoided by paying a guy more than his AAV in previous years. Kronner's contract had a couple 6M years, I think but the average got pulled down to 4.75 by some like 3M and 1M years at the end.

    And no... Niklas Kronwall is 36 going on 37 in January. He did not just sign his deal last year.

    Incorrect... unless Hank mysteriously gets hurt in the future and meets the following criteria:

    "15.6 Any Player who becomes disabled during Training Camp, or who reports to Training
    Camp disabled as a result of a hockey related injury incurred during the off-season, and who has
    qualified during the preceding season, including Playoffs, for at least fifty (50) games credit for
    the purposes of the Pension Plan
    or is on a one-way SPC, shall receive his Paragraph 1 NHL
    Salary and Signing Bonus until he receives appropriate medical clearance."


    Assuming that the Wings would be dangerously close to circumvention if they attempt to burry Hamk, I added their hits.

    $3.95
    +
    $6.08
    __________
    $10.03 million

    I moved the decimal one too far last post, so the cap would need to be $100.3 million to totally hide both of them. People think the LTIR is some magical beast that fixes everything... it isn't.

    The SOIR cant help the Wings here, not now, not without something catastrophic happening to Hank this next offseason.

    Zetterberg at most sticks it out one more year, and that'll likely be a reduced role.

    He's not going to play 2C or 3C on the last two years of that contract for $1M a year.

    Kronwall will be LTIRetired next year. He's not getting the C.
