Terrible for Keith but it also means Clarkie has some breathing room with salaries so get well for next year, Cap! I hope it is not as serious as it may be according to some reports.
The decision for Hatcher is the right one, to me only Johnsson or Handzus are good alternates but that is it. Forsberg would have been fine but I think Hatcher is a better choice. He captained under Hitchcock before and has been a highly underpublicized part of our success. I dont think anyone is doubt a defenseman with ability to move laterally is not cut out for the new NHL anymore.
I would have given it to Mike Richards over Gagne; Richards will be a captain within five or six years either here or somewhere else.
