PLYMOUTH, Mich. — The Detroit Red Wings have chosen Henrik Zetterberg as their captain, replacing retired defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom.
The announcement came as little surprise. Detroit made it official at a news conference Tuesday before a public scrimmage at Compuware Arena in Plymouth, where the Red Wings have been holding training camp.

Datsyu's English is still horrible, if he was coherent I'm sure he'd take it no problem.

Zetterberg was the best choice. If Datsyuk's English was better, he could communicate better and therefore might be a better leader, but, it isn't, so Zetterberg is a good choice.

No surprise here. Even when the wings won the conference finals and Lidstrom was injured, it was Zetterberg that went out to receive the award instead of Datsyuk

Here's hoping his first role as captain isn't to break the playoff streak.
