Shifting The “C”

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

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.

Canucks Deciding On What To Do With Linden

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

“I know I have a skill set that can complement this team and I think I bring some other tangibles that are good for this team,” Linden, the 37-year-old unsigned free agent, said before the meeting. “Quite honestly, if they feel they can be a better team without me, I’m fine with that, don’t have any problem with that. But I need to know.”
It’s hard to believe Linden will feel fine if Vigneault, for reasons that may be difficult for the coach to explain and even harder to defend, decides there isn’t a place on his roster for a versatile veteran who was the Canucks’ best forward in the playoffs and, by coincidence, happens to be the most popular player in team history.
Certainly, few fans in Vancouver will be fine with it.
“I’d be lying to you if I said I wasn’t aware what all this means,” Vigneault said Tuesday. “I know all the love there is for him from the fans and the city. But there’s also a lot of respect for Trevor with management and coaches and everyone in our organization. He has earned that respect.”
