Shifting The “C”

You know it’s August when the first thing I’ve posted in five days is a story about moving a letter 8 inches from port to starboard, or starboard to port depending on your viewpoint.  The Wings will be the only team in the league to alter the traditional placement of the captain’s “C”.

The first thing you notice about Nicklas Lidstrom’s new jersey is the “C.” It’s on the right side, instead of the left…The letters had to be moved because the new jerseys are made of multiple panels, and there wasn’t room for them above the tip of the Winged Wheel on the left side without hitting a seam. And if you look at some old Wings photos, that’s actually been done before, too.”

More on the moving of the “C” and the alternate “A"s, plus confirmation that some of our larger friends will be showing a bit more than we’re all comfortable with due to the “form fitting” style.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
