In the R.S.S. feed on wild.nhl.com they stated that Sykora will wear #17 for the pre-season games. They mention it because it talks about how Danny Irmen used to be #14 but gave that up for Havlat and switched to #17, but now he'll have to switch again to #40
Do not know much about the depth and leadership on the team, where does he fit in?
So do you think he gets to wear an "A" this year?
I think that is a HUGE no:
Koivu will have the "C"
And the Alternates at this point are coming down to these four:
Burns (He will have one no doubt about that)
Nolan (Huge leader on this team and is one of the most veteran on the team)
Bruno (Goes without saying)
Havlat (Might take awhile and for Nolan to probably get hurt, but he'll wear it if that happens)
