Well, I am sure I am not the only one who is doing this right now.  Steve Yzerman has retired.  The Captain.  Stevie Y.  Gone.  I don't know if the Wings will be able to do anything without him.  He was their captain since 1986, the longest tenure in NHL history.  I never thought this would come.  Never.  I thought he would be like Howe and play into his 50's.  Holy crap this sucks.

Now who will captain us?  Lidstrom?  Shanahan if he returns?  Chelios perhaps?


Long live #19.

His jersey has been retired for 10 years. :P They just haven't hung it in the rafters yet. He'll be a Hall of Famer his first chance too most likely.

My mistake, nah, I don't think he will be a hall of famer.

If he retired ten years ago (probably more), it would have been retired. And he will be a hall of famer. Top ten all time in like 5 categories, including goals

Chelios/Shanny will get the 'C,' most likely Shanny, if he comes back. :p Too bad, though. :[

Yeah, it is pretty bad. Lots of people are upset. And why not Lidstrom? I think he is the likely candidate.

Is he even an assistant captain? =P

He's been one since like 1997. :P And why wouldn't he be? Doesn't he have 5 Norris Trophy wins? :P

Shanahan, yes. Chelios, sometimes. Don't know what is up with him. He has an A on his jersey some nights, but not others. But Lidstrom will likely get the C. Someone reported that we won't have a captain until after our first home game to pay tribute to Stevie. Be kinda odd, but cool
