Kukla's Korner Hockey

Want to see Simon Gagne squirm? Then talk to him about being the captain of the Flyers. With Keith Primeau sidelined for days, weeks, months -- who knows? -- Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock asked Gagne recently to don the "C" as team captain in Primeau’s stead until ol’ No. 25 could clear his head and get back on his skate blades. Gagne thought about it. Talked about it with Primeau and former Flyers captain Eric Desjardins and then went back to Hitchcock with his decision. "I don’t feel comfortable because we already have a captain and it’s Keith Primeau," said Gagne. "I told Primeau ‘you’re the captain, I should not wear it.’ The NHL asked us to try and put a captain in place. Hopefully we can stick with three assistant captains."
