...really? I'm ready to move on, not even much in the way of hard feelings at this point. Just excited to see how the team comes together for next season. One player does not a team make.


Also looking forward to watching Minnesota get off to a pretty decent start, having all the analysts picking them for winning the west, then watching them absolutely crash and burn like always.

Would it be selfish of me to hope Zajac DOESN'T get anything? I just bought a Zajac jersey yesterday during the IceJerseys $5 customization sale and I'd be bummed if it went out of date in just a couple months. :blush:

I think Salvador would make a great captain, but realistically, he's relevant for another 2 years, max.

Give it to Kovy. It's his team now.


This exactly. Kovy is the obvious choice because of how long he is here for. No more one season captains please

I could see him getting a letter but in time. You know him coming in to his 2nd season I doubt they'd do it. But I can definitely see him being one if our future leaders

You could always add a letter to it. It doesn't cost that much.

Kovy will be the captain. He's here for the long haul and he deserves it.

Elias/Sal will be the As.

I'm a big fan of defesemen being captain, very little pressure to put up numbers. I'd prefer Sal if possible but will understand if they name Kovy captain.

KOVY????? Really? Don't see it.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

I can definitely see it, when Brodeur and Clarkson say Ilya is one of the best teammates they ever had I will take their word for it.

I think Kovy, Elias, Parise had the A's during the preseason (Zubrus, Sal, Greene wore them too when those guys were out) and I think Zach was named captain in early October a few days before opening night.

This is my thought process exactly. He led the underdog defense in the playoffs last year. Now let him lead the underdog Devils all year.

Sal - C
Kovy - A
Zajac - A

leaders do not have to be the best players, Kovy takes shifts off so I'm not sure how you make him the capt.

I hate these threads which occur almost every year now with this team. It makes very little difference at all who has the letters on their jerseys. The leaders are the leaders regardless of whether they have an extra letter on their jersey. Yes yes, they can talk to the refs in the cone of silence, but my point is that 99.999% of the team's success is unimpacted by the selection of the C IMO.
